Hi,

I am trying to create a simple timesheet in Sharepoint using SQL to store and retreive the data for reportint purposes.

I am using Sharepoint Designer to create the webapges for our Sharepoint 2.0 site which resides on a SBS 2003 server. I have created a subsite where I would like our employees to go to and enter their timesheets and for the managers to get reports from.

I have run into a problem when trying to use a dropdownlist and SQLDataSource  for which I have attached the code for.  The error i am getting when trying to access the page is  -

Could not instantiate control asp:SqlDataSource

Any help with this problem would be great.





<asp:DropDownList runat="server" id="DropDownList1" DataValueField="EmployeeID" DataTextField="Fullname" DataSourceID="VaterDB">
	</asp:DropDownList>
	<asp:SqlDataSource runat="server" ID="DATABASE" ProviderName="System.Data.OleDb" ConnectionString="Provider=SQLOLEDB;Data Source=SERVER\SQLEXPRESS;Integrated Security=SSPI;Initial Catalog=DATABASE" SelectCommand="SELECT [Fullname], [EmployeeID] FROM [qryFullName]">
	</asp:SqlDataSource>
