spGetData PROC returns few fields. The code below attempts to sort each separately before putting them in their respective list boxes. I have 2 errors:

Line 5 in this code: .OrderBy(getField2) has the following error:
'System.Data.Linq.ISingleResult<spGetDataResult>' does not contain a definition for 'OrderBy' and the best extension method overload 'System.Linq.Queryable.OrderBy<TSource,TKey>(System.Linq.IQueryable<TSource>, System.Linq.Expressions.Expression<System.Func<TSource,TKey>>)' has some invalid arguments      


Line 5 again: .OrderBy(getField2)
Instance argument: cannot convert from 'System.Data.Linq.ISingleResult<spGetDataResult>' to 'System.Linq.IQueryable<spGetDataResult>'      

Question: How can I correct these two errors?

A working sample using a table instead of a stored procedure included below for your inspection. This sample does exactly the same task but using a table.
               lb.Items.Clear();
               ParameterExpression o = Expression.Parameter(typeof(spGetDataResult));
               var getField2 = Expression.Lambda<Func<spGetDataResult, string>>(Expression.Property(o, fieldName), o);
               ListItem[] my_outputs = (wscgsContext.spGetData("Mike");
                                    .OrderBy(getField2)
                                    .GroupBy(getField2)
                                    .Select(theGroup => theGroup.FirstOrDefault())
                                    .Select(getField2)
                                    .Select(field => new ListItem(field))).ToArray();
               lb.Items.AddRange(my_outputs);

// The sample code below does the same thing successfully using table called Serach vs a PROC above:
private void LoadListBoxes(ListBox lb)
    {
           lb.Items.Clear();
           string fieldName = lb.ID.Substring(3);

               ParameterExpression o = Expression.Parameter(typeof(Search));
               var getField = Expression.Lambda<Func<Search, string>>(Expression.Property(o, fieldName), o);
               ListItem[] outputs = (wscgsContext.Searches
                                    .OrderBy(getField)
                                    .GroupBy(getField)
                                    .Select(theGroup => theGroup.FirstOrDefault())
                                    .Select(getField)
                                    .Select(field => new ListItem(field))).ToArray();
               lb.Items.AddRange(outputs);
}

Your code has typo mistake -

ListItem[] my_outputs = (wscgsContext.spGetData("Mike");
                                    .OrderBy(getField2)

Note you had left semicolon (;) in end. Test after removing it as -

ListItem[] my_outputs = (wscgsContext.spGetData("Mike")
                                    .OrderBy(getField2)

Vikram,

I must have added the ; by mistake when I was posting the question. I didn't have ; in my code in the application.

So, the question remains: How can I correct these two errors?

It appears that your SP returns a single value only. Thus, I guess, there is nothing to order ..:

'System.Data.Linq.ISingleResult<spGetDataResult>' does not contain a definition for 'OrderBy'

Hi Gustav,

The SP returns multiple records. It is in use and this how I can tell it returns more than one item.

But maybe Linq doesn't know that.

ISingleResult inherits IEnumerable and has an extension method called ToArray:

ISingleResultValue.Select(x => x.StringProperty).ToArray();
 
However, I don't use SPs this way so I cannot confirm.

Basically, This code returns items expected. I want it to display sorted. If you could revise the submitted code to do this, it will be great.

I can't, sorry. I have no SP to test with.

ISingleResultSet does not implement IQueryable. You cannot use an expression as parameter to OrderBy. Instead, pass a delegate by compiling the expression:
var getField2 = Expression.Lambda<Func<spGetDataResult, string>>(Expression.Property(o, fieldName), o).Compile();
ListItem[] my_outputs = (wscgsContext.spGetData("Mike")
                     .OrderBy(getField2)
                     .GroupBy(getField2)
                     .Select(theGroup => theGroup.FirstOrDefault())
                     .Select(getField2)
                     .Select(field => new ListItem(field))).ToArray();
