Hi

How do I update the SQL statement in the following code:
SELECT DISTINCT [Subject or activity] FROM [Table1]
so that nulls are not included.
Sub LoadSubjectDropDown()
        '// define a connection to the database
        Dim cs As String = ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings("WhatEverNameYouWant").ConnectionString
        cs = cs.Replace("App_Data\GC.accdb", Server.MapPath("App_Data\GC.accdb"))

        Dim cn As New OleDbConnection(cs)
        Try
            '// define the sql statement to execute
            Dim cmd As New OleDbCommand("SELECT DISTINCT [Subject or activity] FROM [Table1]", cn)
            '// open the connection
            cn.Open()
            '// execute the sql statement
            Using reader As OleDbDataReader = cmd.ExecuteReader(CommandBehavior.CloseConnection)
                DropDownList_Subject.DataSource = reader
                DropDownList_Subject.DataValueField = "Subject or activity"
                DropDownList_Subject.DataTextField = "Subject or activity"
                DropDownList_Subject.DataBind()
            End Using
        Catch ex As Exception
            Response.Write(ex.Message)

        Finally
            If cn.State <> ConnectionState.Closed Then
                cn.Close()
            End If
        End Try
    End Sub
