Hi,

I am making an asp website using visual c#. I am working on visual studio 2008. I have a problem with selecting data source from the database for UI components. For example, i added a "dropdownlist", clicked to select data source appeared on the right. I entered my hostname, password, and db name correctly. When I clicked to "Test Connection" button, it returns "Test Successful". When I click ok to create data source, it gives me an error:
Invalid collection name
at VsDataObjectSupport(123,6)
at VSDataViewSupport(72,16)
at VSDataViewSupport(1031,4)

Can anyone help me with this problem. Thanks

I've same problem, as you're from Turkey, I suspect that it's about local settings. Any suggestion is appreciated.
