VB.NET Cannot Bind This Event : Column does not belong to table

I am receiving a VB.NET run time error as stated in the title.  I changed a text field to a drop-down as follows in bold, specifically the line next to the arrows.

                    Dim LI As ListItem
                    If DR("Employee_Cd").ToString.Length > 0 Then

-->>>>>>          LI = New ListItem(DR("Employee_Nm"), DR("Employee_Cd"))
                        If Not Me.ddlEmployeeName.Items.Contains(LI) Then
                        End If
                    End If
                    ddlEmployeeName.SelectedValue = DR("Employee_Cd")

                  "This code follows the above and is working correctly"

                    If DR("Supervisor_Cd").ToString.Length > 0 Then

                        LI = New ListItem(DR("Supervisor_Nm"), DR("Supervisor_Cd"))
                        If Not Me.ddlSupervisor.Items.Contains(LI) Then
                        End If
                    End If
                    ddlSupervisor.SelectedValue = DR("Supervisor_Cd")

Looks likes the field "Employee_Nm" is not in the table or queryresult you are querying.

That's what I don't understand...if you look at the code right below it, i.e, supervisor_nm, is not explicitly defined in the queryresult either.

I am just overthinking.... you are correct!   The data event that is saved is returned in a separate query result via a different stored procedure.   I just needed to take the blinders off.  Thanks!

Expert stated the obvious... which in this case is what I needed to be looking at.   Never afraid to ask a question and always glad when someone replies in kind.
