System.MissingMemberException: No default member found for type 'Integer'.

Hi, as a first VB.NET project I'm rewriting 1400 lines of VB 6 code. All goes well until I hit with what seems to be ridiculous compiler message. No matter what I try: casting to int, change the type to int 16, changing ExecuteScalar to ExecuteReader, ... Nothing works and any web searches didn't find anything useful.

The code is on my webspace--the code box messes up the formatting.

Any help will be appreciated. Thank you.

You did not mention which line generates the error but going through the code, here is my conclusion.
We do not use ExecuteScalar with Stored Procedures. Use ExecuteNonQuery() and use the output parameter to get the return value

This is just a "guess" based on what I see in your code,  two parameters are defined as Output regarding their direction, "@min_line_action_proposals__id" and "@max_line_action_proposals__id"

I guess your code from

lngMinLineActionProposalsId = param.Value("@min_line_actions__id")   <<< ERROR HERE
lngMaxLineActionProposalsId = param.Value("@max_line_actions__id")

should be

lngMinLineActionProposalsId = param.Value("@min_line_action_proposals__id")  
lngMaxLineActionProposalsId = param.Value("@max_line_action_proposals__id")

I hope my guess helps. :-)

Just to add comment based on my previous post, I also conclude the changes based on the name of variable you use lngMinLineActionProposalsId and lngMaxLineActionProposalsID.

So, I guess it should be

lngMinLineActionProposalsId = param.Value("@min_line_action_proposals__id")  
lngMaxLineActionProposalsId = param.Value("@max_line_action_proposals__id")

A good try, but a co-worker had the solution.
>but a co-worker had the solution.
Does that make our solutions bad in any way (as your grading indicates)?

Thanks guys, my bad on the misnamed parameters. The error still occurred when corrected. A co-worker pointed out that "param" was not a collection as was used. FYI his solution is posted.

Thanks for the good attempt and more questions to follow!

lngMinLineActionProposalsId =  _   cmd.Parameters("@min_line_action_proposals__id").Value

lngMaxLineActionProposalsId = _         cmd.Parameters("@max_line_action_proposals__id").Value
