I have a shared function that I need(for a component) and it looks to be impossbile to grab data from the cache that way. It crashes when I try to get the data from the cache. I know there is data in there well because I run it right after and there is plenty of RAM in the web server to accomplish this. It throws a:<BR><BR>Compiler Error Message: BC30369: Cannot refer to an instance member of a class from within a shared method or shared member initializer without an explicit instance of the class.<BR><BR>My Code for function is:<BR><BR>&#060;Cambro.Web.DbCombo.ResultsMethodA ttribute(true)&#062; _<BR>Public Shared Function DbComboNorthwind(sqlQuery as String, top As Integer) As Object<BR> <BR> Dim contractorview As DataView = Cache.Get("MyDataView")<BR> <BR> contractorview.rowfilter = "DBComboText LIKE &#039;" & sqlQuery & "%&#039;"<BR> <BR> return contractorview<BR>End Function<BR><BR>Matt
