Hi,
I have a following cod in VB and I am trying to convert it to C#... Thanks!

  WhereClause = " where " & Strings.Mid(WhereClause, 6)

  WhereClause = " where " + WhereClause.Substring(5, WhereClause.Length);

I am getting the following error for C# part:
ArgumentOutOfRangeException was unhandled by user code
Index and length must refer to a location within the string.
Parameter name: length

shouldn't you be using:

WhereClause = " where " + WhereClause.Substring(5, WhereClause.Length - 5);

You can just do:

    WhereClause = " where " & WhereClause.Substring(5)

*But this assumes that WhereClause has at least six characters in it.

To be safe:

    if (WhereClause.Length >= 6)
    {
        WhereClause = " where " & WhereClause.Substring(5)
    }

*I forgot the semicolons ";" on the ends of the lines though!

    if (WhereClause.Length >= 6)
    {
        WhereClause = " where " & WhereClause.Substring(5);
    }
