I have an object that I am trying to populate  the return will be the same from 3 stored procedures and I don't want to duplicate the code.

Here is what I am trying to do
        public static CompassUser HandleUserLoginByPassword(string UGUID, string UserName, string PassWord)
            CompassUser cU = new CompassUser();

            var d = _dB.ps_HandleUserLoginBy_Password(UGUID, UserName, PassWord).SingleOrDefault();
            if (d != null)
                cU = MakeCompassUser(d);
            return cU;

        public static CompassUser HandleUserLoginByGUID(string UGUID)
                cU = MakeCompassUser(d);

I want to convert/cast the object coming into MakeCompassUser and populate the object.

        private static CompassUser MakeCompassUser(Object d)
            CompassUser cU = new CompassUser();

            switch (d.GetType().Name)
                case "ps_HandleUserLoginBy_PasswordResult" :
                    d = (ps_HandleUserLoginBy_PasswordResult)d;
                    cU.UserID = d.UserID; is where it fails


            //cU.UserID = d.UserID;

            return cU;

// object is this

    public class CompassUser
        public Int64 UserID { get; set; }
        public string UserGUID { get; set; }
        public string UserDisplayName { get; set; }
        public string UserName { get; set; }
        public string UserEmail { get; set; }
        public string UserPictureURL { get; set; }
        public string UserPhone { get; set; }
        public string UserFax { get; set; }
        public string UserBio { get; set; }
        public string UserRole { get; set; }
        public string LastLoginDate { get; set; }
        public string LoginAttempt { get; set; }
        public Int16 IsSystem { get; set; }
