Greetings Experts,
Not sure where I went wrong here. I thought my code was pretty solid. My records are adding to my collection but they are not displaying on my main form.  I get my catch error on line 107 (frmMain)
and lines 120 & 120 (frmMain)are givine me conversion type errors..

Conversion from string "" to type 'Integer' is not valid.
Conversion from string "" to type 'Decimal' is not valid.

Yet im not converting either they were declared respectivly in their classes as INteger and decimal.
PLease advise

    Private Sub DisplayData(ByVal pc As PreferredCustomer)
        pc.Address = txtAddress.Text
        pc.City = txtCity.Text
        pc.CustomerID = CInt(txtCustNumber.Text)
        pc.Comments = txtComments.Text
        'pc.DiscountLevel = txtpercent.Text
        pc.FirstName = txtFirstName.Text
        pc.LastName = txtLastName.Text
        pc.Phone = txtPhone.Text
        pc.PurchaseAmount = CDec(txtPurchase.Text)
        pc.State = txtState.Text
        pc.Zip = txtZip.Text
    End Sub

Open in new window

Since the sub is named "DisplayData", I believe you want to show the data in the textbox. If so, that should be
        txtAddress.Text = pc.Address
        txtCity.Text = pc.City
        etc...

Open in new window

I think Thomasian has a good point... If you want to display data you should be getting the data from your PreferredCustomer class and displaying it in the textboxes.
Try that out and let us know.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

i reversed it and then it says

Colleciton index must be in the range 1 to the size of hte colleciton

the value i used was 1001

 also when i reversed that
it autogenreated  
txtcustnumber.text = CStr(pc.customerID)
