Hi,
two issues:
- in the HTML the data-name for the third column should be
<th data-name="CompanyLegalName" data-width="160">Name</th>

Open in new window

(name typo: LegalCompanyName <> CompanyLegalName)
- the JSON is not the configured format - you configured the data inside the results property of the JSON object. Therefore if you add on top of your data.json a
 {"results":
and at the end the closing }
then it works.

How would you just do this with jquery not NG? Like the example on datatables.net . http://localhost:8888/Datatables/examples/data_sources/ajax.html
