Is this possible, I keep getting an error telling me I must close one datareader before another can use the same connection. If i close the datareader, the data is not passed into the DropDownlist (which is required). Is there anyway of pushing the data into the DropDownlist and making it stay there, so that I can close the 1st DataReader and then reuse the connection, or must I use another connection?<BR><BR>Regards<BR><BR>James.
