Re: SqlDataReader and System.InvalidCastException

Some more strange behavior, the following line will cause an exception
to be thrown:

If I place a breakpoint there, this line works fine in the Immediate
Window and does not throw an error.

Any ideas out there?

I am using trying to get some data out of a SQL 2000 database via
stored procedure, but I am getting some strange results.  It will pull
back the first 3 fields but the rest (7 other fields) seem to be
empty, and not just DBNull, but the objects just aren't there.

Here is the code:

SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand("psx_GetIntlAdrress", cn);
cmd.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure;

SqlParameter paraOrderID = new SqlParameter("@OrderID",
paraOrderID.Value = SourceMessage.SelectSingleNode("/Orders/

SqlDataReader rsIntlOrder = cmd.ExecuteReader();

if (rsIntlOrder.HasRows)
          while (rsIntlOrder.Read())

This gives me the "Object reference not set to an instance of an
object." exception:

string sSomeValue = rsIntlOrder[3] != DBNull.Value ?
rsIntlOrder[2].ToString().Trim() : "";

I have verified that the stored procedure is returning all values.  If
I break one a line that works and look at the datareader it shows that
there are 10 fields, but only the first 3 will not throw an error.
Drilling down, the remaining elements show System.InvalidCastException
for all data types.  Not sure what is going wrong here, hoping someone
can help.
