Hi there,

Did you search Google? This search:


returns useful results like:


In your other post you mentioned a SqlDataSource control. I don't think it's the best tool for the job as it doesn't return hierachical data. Instead, you probably want to get a DataSet (or a Typed DataSet) to populate your control.

Hope this helps,
