Hi Peter, Thanks, here's a very simple implementation of the code.
I'm sure it's something we are overlooking, I just don't see it.
I think if I can load it into my vs and have a look, it will jump out at me.
So what I'd like is for the gridview to update every time a value is changed in the any of the form fields.
I set them all (except the text boxes of course) to Auto Postback, but when any of the dropdownlists are changed the query is not sent to the database and the gridview continues to display the empty dataset message.
I was able to edit items in it without any problems.
