I am trying to accomplish a Master Detail Display here.
The master item is ProductName and Child items are the details of the Product.
Example:
Dell Desktop V305
- Model: Black - 23877487y24y
- Mother Board - Intel ....
- RAM - 3 GB DDR
HP Printer
- Ink Jet C 7770
- 4 Catridge
- Return Policy: blah blah

The ProductName (Master) comes from one table and children come from another. They are linked by Inventory_Item_Id.

I am cleaning up someones code. so I am restricted to datareader and nested repeater.
Please help me with how to go about it.

thanks for the help in advance.

Here is the code I have done. I am able to show the product name but child elements is where I am having trouble.
