This is a common error that occurs when you are trying to display a record in ASP.NET from a DataSource such as a SQL database, and a field you requested within the code cannot be found within the result returned by the DataSource.

For example if you use a SQL command to retrieve fields, and you get an error similar to the one below, it means that SomeField was not returned from the SQL command, so you should check the query. Very probably, you forgot to include SomeField in the “SELECT” portion of the SQL query.
