Nevermind i just copyed the file over one more time and for some reason now it works.
There is still the inconsistansies of the sample code and what is shown in the book.
for example in this Try it out the book displays all the fields of the fixtures in the Gridview control. but the sample code only show the fixtureID FixtureDate and Opponent. I know this is small potatoes but still annoying none the less.
anyways I feel a little better that I got it to work
