I'm getting the above error while trying to load a ComboBox. It only occurs on the second execution of the LoadDirectionComboBox() Function. What does this mean? Below is the process of execution.

   'This Sub is executed from a Form Class
    Public Sub LoadDirectionComboBox()
        Try
            InitializeErrorClass(EH)
            BL.LoadDirectionComboBox(EH)

            If EH.DataSet.Tables(0).Rows.Count > 0 Then
                cmbDirection.DataSource = Nothing
                cmbDirection.DataSource = EH.DataSet.Tables(0)
                cmbDirection.DisplayMember = EH.DataSet.Tables(0).Columns(1).ColumnName
                cmbDirection.ValueMember = EH.DataSet.Tables(0).Columns(0).ColumnName
            End If

        Catch ex As Exception
            EH.ErrorMessage = "LoadDirectionComboBox() - " & ex.Message & "~E"
        End Try

        EH.ProcessMessages(Me, sbr, EH.ErrorMessage)
    End Sub
   '
   '
   'This Function initializes an Error Handling Class Objects and is in a Module File
    Public Function InitializeErrorClass(ByRef EH As ErrorHandling.ErrorHandler)
        Try
            EH.DataSet = New DataSet
            EH.DataTable = New DataTable
            EH.Exception = Nothing
            EH.ErrorMessage = ""
            EH.Character = ""
            EH.Bool = False
            EH.Number = 0

        Catch ex As Exception
            EH.ErrorMessage = "InitializeErrorClass() - " & ex.Message & "~E"
        End Try

        Return EH
    End Function

Try changing following

cmbDirection.DisplayMember = EH.DataSet.Tables(0).Columns(1).ColumnName
cmbDirection.ValueMember = EH.DataSet.Tables(0).Columns(0).ColumnName

to

Dim dispMember  As String = EH.DataSet.Tables(0).Columns(1).ColumnName
Dim valMember As String = EH.DataSet.Tables(0).Columns(0).ColumnName
cmbDirection.DisplayMember = dispMember
cmbDirection.ValueMember = valMember

I actually got it working. I moved the DataSource assignment statement beneath the DisplayMember/ValueMember statements and that seemed to work. Not sure why though...

Yes that would have been my next option. On random occasions, this fixes the issue especially when reassigning/repopulating the combobox.
