Default hyperlink in nested datalist

Here the situation is like this.
On my page I am listing the name of campuses grouped my state.Then when the user clicks on the campus , the listing of rental locations under that particular campus pops up in the repeater.
In a seperate file I can show the campuses grouped by state, and it is running. In another file if I just click on campus it shows the the rental location. But If I combine all three of them together it gives me an error. PLease help-

So it looks like this-
-campus A
-campus B
-campus c
-campus d

If the user clicks on -campus A ,then all the rental locations under campus A will show in a repeater.

<asp:DataList id="DataList" style="Z-INDEX: 101; LEFT: 48px; POSITION: absolute; TOP: 56px" runat="server">
<SelectedItemStyle BackColor="#FFFFC0"></SelectedItemStyle>
<h2><%# DataBinder.Eval(Container,"DataItem.statefull")%></h2>
<asp:DataList id="DataList1" DataSource='<%# Showcampus(DataBinder.Eval(Container,"DataItem.sta teid"))%>' Runat="server">
<asp:LinkButton ID="Linkbutton2" Runat="server" Text='<%# DataBinder.Eval(Container,"DataItem.name")%>'>
<DIV style="Z-INDEX: 102; LEFT: 408px; WIDTH: 272px; POSITION: absolute; TOP: 56px; HEIGHT: 224px" ms_positioning="FlowLayout">
<asp:Repeater id="Repeater1" runat="server">
<%# DataBinder.Eval(Container, "DataItem.facility_center_name")%>


the code behind--
private void Page_Load(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
// Put user code to initialize the page here
DataList.DataSource = dataSet1;
DataList.DataMember = "tbl_state";
DataList1.DataSource = dataSet1;
DataList1.DataKeyField ="campus_id";

public DataView Showcampus(object stateid)
string strFilter = "stateid=" + stateid;
DataView dvcampus = new DataView(
dataSet1.Tables[ "tbl_location" ],
return dvcampus;
private void DataList1_ItemCommand(object source, System.Web.UI.WebControls.DataListCommandEventArgs e)
DataList1.SelectedIndex = e.Item.ItemIndex;
int intPrimaryKey = (int)DataList1.DataKeys[e.Item.ItemIndex];
Repeater1.DataSource = dataSet1;
