VB6 to VB2008 conversion ADO field issue (.value)

When I allowed VB2008 to convert my VB6 program, .Value was added to some of the field variables and others did not.  For instance, in the same section of the program, I had this:

rs("FirstName") was converted to rs.fields("FirstName")

but then a few lines down it added a .Value to a different column:

rs("LastName") was converted to rs.fields("LastName").Value

Do you know why this random-ness happened?

I know if VB6 if there was not a .Value on these it was implied, is that not the case in VB.NET?

Thanks

No it is no longer the case, there are no default properties in VB.net so in fact all of the lines should have .Value added to them
