I have a datareader bringing in information and assigning it to a label using the code below. Whenever it runs into a tilde (~) in one of the datasets, it chops it off and everything prior to it. How can I get around this?
Private Sub ReadNext()
        If CType(Session.Item("reader"), Data.SqlClient.SqlDataReader).Read() Then
            If Not CType(Session.Item("reader"), Data.SqlClient.SqlDataReader)("DESCRIPTION") Is DBNull.Value Then
                Label4.Text = CType(Session.Item("reader"), Data.SqlClient.SqlDataReader)("DESCRIPTION").ToString
                Label4.Text = ""
            End If
    Private Sub ResetDataReader()
        Dim myConn As New Data.SqlClient.SqlConnection(myConnString)
        Dim mySelectQuery As String = "SELECT * FROM tblMain"
        myCommand = New Data.SqlClient.SqlCommand(mySelectQuery, myConn)
        myReader = myCommand.ExecuteReader
        Session.Item("reader") = myReader
    End Sub
