    Conversion Error


    I have the following code:

      Dim nationalID As String = Autoreader.GetValue(0)

    E.g., of nationalID include: A2352, 263287, A3643724B

    At runtime I receive the error message:

    Conversion from string "A2352" to type 'Double' is not valid.
    Any help please

    Re: Conversion Error

    You're not getting that exception on that line of code, unless there's something in that GetValue method that you're not telling us about. Where is the exception actually thrown? The stack trace will tell you.

    By the way, I'm assuming that Autoreader is a data reader of some sort. We shouldn't have to assume or guess though, because you should be providing us with all the relevant information.

    What line are you getting that error on?

    C++ programmers will dismiss you as a cretinous simpleton for your inability to keep track of pointers chained 6 levels deep and Java programmers will pillory you for buying into the evils of Microsoft. Meanwhile C# programmers will get paid just a little bit more than you for writing exactly the same code and VB6 programmers will continue to whitter on about "footprints". - FunkyDexter
