Hi,

I am trying to load a XML file into a datatable with the datatable.readxml method, but i am getting an error because some integer fields have no value in the XML File.

Before reading the XML, i have set the column datatype to integer, and also set the column to allow dbnull. (dtColumn.AllowDBNull = True) I also tried to set the defaultvalue of the column to dbnull.value, but i still got the error.

Does anybody have a solution for this problem?

Thanks.
