For Each oRow As DataRow In AS400DS.Rows
            If oRow (2).ToString = "AB" Then
                Absentee.DataField = "Hours"
            ElseIf oRow (2).ToString = "VA" Then
                Vacation.DataField = "Hours"
            ElseIf oRow (2).ToString = "OT" Then
                OT.DataField = "Hours"
            ElseIf oRow (2).ToString = "WH" Then
                OTx2.DataField = "Hours"
            End If
            Response.Write(oRow(2).ToString)

hi,

try this:
For Each DataRow In AS400DS.Rows
            If LCase(AS400DS.Columns(2).ToString) = LCase("AB") Then
                Absentee.DataField = "Hours"
            ElseIf LCase(AS400DS.Columns(2).ToString) = LCase("VA") Then
                Vacation.DataField = "Hours"
            ElseIf LCase(AS400DS.Columns(2).ToString) = LCase("OT") Then
                OT.DataField = "Hours"
            ElseIf LCase(AS400DS.Columns(2).ToString) = LCase("WH") Then
                OTx2.DataField = "Hours"
            End If

crud, sorry, my bad, try this instead:
dim dr as DataRow
 
For Each dr In AS400DS.Rows
            If LCase(dr.Columns(2).ToString) = LCase("AB") Then
                Absentee.DataField = "Hours"
            ElseIf LCase(dr.Columns(2).ToString) = LCase("VA") Then
                Vacation.DataField = "Hours"
            ElseIf LCase(dr.Columns(2).ToString) = LCase("OT") Then
                OT.DataField = "Hours"
            ElseIf LCase(dr.Columns(2).ToString) = LCase("WH") Then
                OTx2.DataField = "Hours"
            End If
            Response.Write(dr.Columns(2))
        Next
