Hi,

When I try to run the following code, I get an error

"No data exists for the row/column. "

 what is wrong with the code?

 protected void bindFiles()
    {
        OleDbConnection cn = new OleDbConnection(...
        OleDbCommand cmd2 = new OleDbCommand(...
        try
        {
            cn.Open();
           OleDbDataReader dr = cmd2.ExecuteReader();

           Context.Session["x"] = dr[2].ToString();
           Context.Session["y"] = dr[3].ToString();
           Context.Session["z"] = dr[4].ToString();

            gvSTLFiles.DataSource = dr;
            gvSTLFiles.DataBind();

            dr.Close();
        }
        catch
        {
            throw;  <----- error here
        }
        finally
        {
            cn.Close();
            cn.Dispose();
        }

You need to call the read method after the execute reader call
See full example here

try the below code
        protected void bindFiles()
    {
        OleDbConnection cn = new OleDbConnection("your connection string");
        OleDbCommand cmd2 = new OleDbCommand("your sql query");
        try
        {
            cn.Open();
            OleDbDataAdapter da= new OleDbDataAdapter(cmd2.ToString() ,cn);
            DataSet Ds= new DataSet();
            da.Fill(Ds); 
 
            foreach(DataRow dr in Ds.Tables[0].Rows)
            {
           Context.Session["x"] = dr[2].ToString();
           Context.Session["y"] = dr[3].ToString();
           Context.Session["z"] = dr[4].ToString();
            }

            gvSTLFiles.DataSource = Ds.Tables[0];
            gvSTLFiles.DataBind();

        }
        catch
        {
            throw;  
        }
        finally
        {
            cn.Close();
            cn.Dispose();
        }
            }

Hi

The datareader object cannot be set as datasource to gridview without reading. Below link details the code for binding data reader to gridview.

hi.. you have to write code like this

protected void bindFiles()
    {
        OleDbConnection cn = new OleDbConnection(...
        OleDbCommand cmd2 = new OleDbCommand(...
        try
        {
            cn.Open();
           OleDbDataReader dr = cmd2.ExecuteReader();
while dr.read()
{
           Context.Session["x"] = dr[2].ToString();
           Context.Session["y"] = dr[3].ToString();
           Context.Session["z"] = dr[4].ToString();
}
end while
            gvSTLFiles.DataSource = dr;
            gvSTLFiles.DataBind();

            dr.Close();
        }
        catch
        {
            throw;  <----- error here
        }
        finally
        {
            cn.Close();
            cn.Dispose();
        }
