I have a webpart that I created and then I did a build and deployed using wspbuilder.

When I try to add a webpart to a sharepoint page, I get the following error
"   
The "HotLine_WebPart" Web Part appears to be causing a problem. Value does not fall within the expected range.
"

Could you please look at the code I have to see what I did wrong?  Thanks for any help you can provide.  I'm supposed to show this tomorrow at work.

Does your list hotline exist?
Are you sure taht all the properties in the listitem exist and have the correct name? I can guess that property code is probably going to be property_x0020_code

It looks like your list "HOTLINE" is not available in the site where you are adding the web part. or one of the column is not available in the list or miss spelled.

generally error is returned by Array or collection and when the specified item/index is not available.

hope this will help you to rectify the error.

Regards,
Vikas Patel.

>>I can guess that property code is probably going to be property_x0020_code <<
What do you mean?
