Looping through IDataReader

Last Modified: 2012-06-27
Hi All,

I know I should know the answer to this!...

I have the attached code which is supposed to loop through my IDataReader control. I would have expected it to return 2 records but it is only returning 1 and is missing the 1st record.

Please could anyone suggest code tweaks to make this happen for me that would be great.

Many thanks,

while (MyIdataReader.Read())
                    strProviderList = strProviderList + "Provider: " + Convert.ToString(ir1["ProviderName"])
