Hi,
I am accessing a stored procedure through the Entity Framework. I have generated the access code, as well as the view. The problem is that the procedure returns an ObjectResult(Of T), and the view is expeting IEnumerable. I have tried various ways of casting the ObjectResult, but I am still getting and error indicating that it is not changing. If I do not attempt to cast item I pass to the view, I get the error:

The model item passed into the dictionary is of type 'System.Data.Objects.ObjectResult1[gbip_new.FirmsNamed_Result]', but this dictionary requires a model item of type 'System.Collections.Generic.IEnumerable1[gbip_new.Firm]'.

I have tried changing the Model in the view, but that seems to cause other problems.

Here is the function from my controller

            Function FirmList(Optional ByVal firmName As String = "") As ActionResult
                Dim firms As IEnumerable(Of Global.gbip_new.Firm)
                Dim firmResult As ObjectResult(Of Global.gbip_new.FirmsNamed_Result)
                firmResult = db.FirmsNamed(firmName)
                firms = firmResult.AsEnumerable
                Return View(firms)
            End Function

Here is the error message

Message=Unable to cast object of type 'System.Data.Objects.ObjectResult1[gbip_new.FirmsNamed_Result]' to type 'System.Collections.Generic.IEnumerable1[gbip_new.Firm]'.

The View code is:

@ModelType IEnumerable(Of gbip_new.Firm)

@Code
    ViewData("Title") = "FirmList"
End Code

<h2>FirmList</h2>

<p>
    @Html.ActionLink("Create New", "Create")
</p>
<table>
    <tr>
        <th>
            @Html.DisplayNameFor(Function(model) model.shortName)
        </th>
        <th>
            @Html.DisplayNameFor(Function(model) model.name)
        </th>

        <th></th>
    </tr>

@For Each item In Model
    Dim currentItem = item
    @<tr>

        <td>
            @Html.DisplayFor(Function(modelItem) currentItem.shortName)
        </td>
        <td>
            @Html.DisplayFor(Function(modelItem) currentItem.name)
        </td>

        <td>
            @Html.ActionLink("Quotes", "Edit", New With {.id = currentItem.id}) |
            @Html.ActionLink("Edit", "Edit", New With {.id = currentItem.id}) |
            @Html.ActionLink("Details", "Details", New With {.id = currentItem.id}) |
            @Html.ActionLink("Delete", "Delete", New With {.id = currentItem.id})
        </td>
    </tr>
Next

</table>

The class defination for the firm is:
