Mike -- I will answer just about any question but I expect, at the very least, a rudimentary understanding of programming concepts and a novice level profiecency with the .NET technology and will help him learn the best I can but I agree with you, he definately needs to pick up some books or something.
I am a big fan of people learning and, as such, I very rarely post code that you can copy and paste and have it just "work". So, along those lines Venkatesan, show me the code that you have so far that you are using to try and display a record and I will tell you what you are doing wrong.
I will only tell you how to do it, not do it for you.
Unless, of course, you want to hire me to do work for you.
