Experts, I am having trouble getting a column from my datatable using a linq query. I fill the datatable from an SQL query. The column is an integer type. I can use the linq queries just fine with string columns but cannot get it to work on integers.

Please Help...

Column Name is "rWidth".
Dim query as iEnumerable(Of Integer)
Dim iList as New List(Of Integer)

query = From w in ds.tables("dtRibbon")
               Select w.Field(Of Integer)("rWidth")
               Distinct

iList = query.ToList

You are missing two constructs:
1) AsEnumerable. You can't query against the DataTable's Rows collection, since DataRowCollection doesn't implement IEnumerable<T>.
2) Distinct is a method call.
Modified query is shown below
query = (From w in ds.tables("dtRibbon").AsEnumerable()
               Select w.Field(Of Integer)("rWidth"))
               .Distinct()
