There seems to be a lot of ways to do this, I was wondering if I could get some examples and perhaps quick tips to fix my code.  Currently I can see blank lines where the data should be, but no data.
ASP:
  <td align="left">
            <b>Recent Billing Activity</b><asp:imagebutton id="lnkExpand" runat="server" />:
            <asp:datalist id="ddlBills" datakeyfield="StatementNumber" runat="server" cellpadding="4" Visible="true" Width="100%">
                <HeaderTemplate>
                    <td valign="top" width="14%" align="left">
                        <b>Status</b>
                    </td>
                    <td valign="top" width="14%" align="left">
                        <b>Bill #</b>
                    </td>
                    <td valign="top" width="14%" align="left">
                        <b>Bill Date</b>
                    </td>
                    <td valign="top" width="14%" align="left">
                        <b>Due Date</b>
                    </td>
                    <td valign="top" width="14%" align="left">
                        <b>Bill AMT</b>
                    </td>
                    <td valign="top" width="14%" align="left">
                        <b>Bal Due</b>
                    </td>
                    <td valign="top" width="14%" align="left">
                        <b>PDF</b>
                    </td>
                </HeaderTemplate>
                <itemtemplate>
                    <td valign="top" width="14%" align="left">
                        <asp:Label ID="lblStatus" runat="server" />
                    </td>
                    <td valign="top" width="14%" align="left">
                        <asp:Label ID="lblStatementNumber" runat="server" />
                    </td> 
                   
                    <td valign="top" width="14%" align="left">
                        <asp:Label ID="lblStatementDate" runat="server" />
                    </td>
                    <td valign="top" width="14%" align="left">
                        <asp:Label ID="lblDueDate" runat="server" />
                    </td>
                    <td valign="top" width="14%" align="left">
                        <asp:Label ID="lblBilledAMT" runat="server" />
                    </td>
                    <td valign="top" width="14%" align="left">
                        <asp:Label ID="lblOutstandingAMT" runat="server" />
                    </td>
                    <td valign="top" width="14%" align="left">
                        <asp:HyperLink ID="HyperLink1" runat="server" Text="PDF" ImageUrl="~/Images/pdficon_small.gif" Target="_blank" />

                    </td>
                </itemtemplate>
             
            </asp:datalist>
    

Open in new window


VB:

            sqladapt.Fill(dstable)


            repeater1.DataSource = dstable
            repeater1.DataBind()

            callFunctionStr.Connection.Close()

You need to eval the fields like:
 <itemtemplate>
   <td valign="top" width="14%" align="left">
       <asp:Label ID="lblStatus" runat="server" Text='<%# Eval("YourStatusFieldName") %>'/>
   </td>
    <td valign="top" width="14%" align="left">
           <asp:Label ID="lblStatementNumber" runat="server" Text='<%# Eval("YourStatementNumberFieldName") %>' />
     </td> 

---and so no
