Let's say this works and I get the 3rd dropdown working. How do i get the response to the 3rd dropdown. For example, 1st dropdown is Printer model, 2nd is 'Paper Jam' and 'instructions for clearing paper Jam' so underneath the 3rd dropdown I'll be showing a paragraph with instructions. How do I trigger that. That also comes from a database, I imazine!

Regarding the error message: again, it looks like you either didn't create the objects, put them in the wrong namespace or gave them a different name. Maybe you should read up on typed DataSets a bit before you continue? http://www.google.com/#hl=en&source=...asets+tutorial

This looks like a reasonably simple task, but it also seems you're spending a lot of time on it.

With regard to the second question: you pretty much need to repeat the same stuff over again. Get the value from the last database, call a service, get the text from the database and display it in the page. Rather than looping over the items to create a drop down list, you display the text in, say, some <div /> element.

Cheers,

Imar
