Hi,<BR><BR>I am trying to pupulate a dropdownlist with two columns from an access database instead of one. I&#039;m using webmatrix to generate the query. I modified it like I&#039;ve read online about concatenating the two fields together and using the "AS" assignment. I keep getting a "multiple-step OLEdb operation error" message. Any ideas on what I&#039;m doing wrong??<BR><BR>Dim queryString As String = "SELECT course_type + &#039; &#039; + course_num AS typenum "& _<BR>"FROM tbl_course_offerings WHERE (offering like &#039;sprin"& _<BR>"g&#039;)"<BR><BR>The query works perfect (besides only showing course num if I remove the "+ &#039; &#039; +"<BR>Please Help!!
