Below is the script that does the Load and specifies the 2 fields  to get

  LoginDetails.exDataSource = GlobalConfig.Connection.GetExchRate_All();
  glTRANSCurrencyValue.DataSource = LoginDetails.exDataSource;
  glTRANSCurrencyValue.DisplayMember = "FullCodeName";
  glTRANSExchrateValue.DataBindings.Add(new System.Windows.Forms.Binding("Text", LoginDetails.exDataSource, "exchrate", true));
  glTRANSCurrencyValue.DataBindings.Add(new System.Windows.Forms.Binding("Text", LoginDetails.exDataSource, "othercurrencycode", true));
