Hey all! I'm rather new to connecting to external sources so bear with me. The error I'm getting is that "No data exists for the row/column." the code in question: String ConnectionString; ConnectionString = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;" + "Data Source = C:\\Users;Extended Properties =dBase IV;"; System.Data.OleDb.OleDbConnection dBaseConnection; dBaseConnection = new System.Data.OleDb.OleDbConnection(ConnectionString); dBaseConnection.Open(); System.Data.OleDb.OleDbCommand dBaseCommand; dBaseCommand = new System.Data.OleDb.OleDbCommand("SELECT FPHONE FROM ADDRESS", dBaseConnection); System.Data.OleDb.OleDbDataReader dBaseDataReader; dBaseDataReader = dBaseCommand.ExecuteReader(CommandBehavior.SequentialAccess); txtFaxNum.Text = dBaseDataReader.GetValue(0).ToString(); The full data source is in that format (meaning seperated with \\ ) and the coloumn name is correct and that is the name of the table. Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong?
