Default Nested query


I have been trying to write a nested query, however there are runtime errors.
The code is as below:

    Dim MyConnection = New SqlConnection()
    MyConnection.ConnectionString = ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings("AppConnect ionString1").ConnectionString


    Dim cmd As New SqlCommand

    Dim rs As SqlDataReader
    Dim rs2 As SqlDataReader

    Dim query = "select count(bank_id) from bank_master"
    Dim query2 As String

    cmd.CommandType = CommandType.Text

    cmd.Connection = MyConnection

    cmd.CommandText = query

    rs = cmd.ExecuteReader

    If rs.Read() Then
    Dim rec = rs(0)
    If (rec > 0) Then
        Response.Write(rec & " banks registered in the system")

        query2 = "select * from bank_master order by bank_id"
        rs2 = cmd.ExecuteReader(query2)
        If rs2.Read() Then
        Response.Write("No banks yet registered in the system")
        End If
        Response.Write("No banks yet registered in the system")
    End If
    End If

The error that i am getting is :

Server Error in '/Accounts' Application.

Input string was not in a correct format.
Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about the error and where it originated in the code.

Line 120: If rs2.Read() Then
Line 121: Response.Write(rs2(0))

I don't see anything wrong with the query you are trying to use.

Despite that however, this should be failing for a different reason: you can't have 2 data readers open at the same time.

Also, reviewing your code, I'd say you are making this more complicated than it needs to be. You are first asking for a count of records, then asking for the records. Why not just ask for the records? You'll know if you get no records back because .Read() will be false.
