Thanks again, Brian.....
I think I need to back up a bit...what I'm trying to
do is stick with the code from 'thePhile' that the
book illustrates. my technique is to stay with the code
where I'm only changing names but not actual operations
because the code works perfectly on the sample website
(you might want to look at www.ericengler.com/default.aspx--
this is a forum poster who has put the site on the internet
so people can view it and play around with it without having
to set it up on their own VisualStudio-equipped terminal).
Anyway, I only change code or storedproc's when I have to because
my functionality will be different. So, the subroutine
"PropCompanyNameList_IndexChanged" is the same in my original
code with only my names (like 'PropCompanyNameList' instead of
'CategoryDropDown') substituted. That is why I'm trying to only focus on the code I've has to change to see where I might have
err'ed. That leads me to suspect my versions of the stored procedures
CompanyName" and my code for "GetAdminVendorEquipment" in the
business tier and also my BindGrid and PageLoad subs in the
code-behind for the page.
Sorry so long-winded. If you still would like to help, I can't tell
you how much I appreciate it, and let me know what pieces you
think we need to look at together and I'll send them.
