Default Using Visual Studio Net With Beg ASP.NET

I can not get my dropdownlist to display data.

I created a webform connected to a access db via OLEDB JET4.0

Created a OleDbConnection1

Created a OleDataAdapter1 Using Generate Dataset

Created DsLogin1 from table tblLoginInfo via query build

From the toolbox I added a dropdownlist to the form and in the properties I changed

DataMember: tblLoginInfo

DataSources: Login1

DataTextField: EmpID

DataValueField: EmpID

I assume this is a databind issue, so is this a property setting some where or code that I have to add?

If you know a walkthrough that shows this please point me in the right direction.

I have several books on .net (WROX), but none use VS .net examples.

Are you using a Data Set? Are you sure your query is working? Check to make sure rows are being returned. Please post your code, it would help in figuring out your problem.

I used Visual Studio to generate the OLEDBconnection, OLEDBDataAdapter, then clicked the Generate Dataset under the OLEDBAdapter Property window to create the dataset dsLogin1.

I then added a dropdownlist from the toolbox, and changed the properties listed to, DataMember: tblLoginInfo, DataSources: Login1, DataTextField: EmpID, DataValueField: EmpID .

When I click preview in browser it does not show any data. My question is on the dropdownlist should I use the databind property or do I need to code databind() or fill dataset in my On_Page Load code?
