new column added in dataSet designer not appearing in DisplayMember

Posted 06 February 2013 - 09:55 AM

(Learning VB)
In DataSet Designer I had a DataSet of EmplyeeID , firstName and lastName and added a column FullName to concatenate the first and last names.

Now FullName is listed in Data Sources and works on a form on its own. The trouble is, when I try to bind it to a different ComboBox, it doesn't show up in the Display Member drop box with the rest of the DataSet.

Any thoughts would be helpful

I just ran through this process and it worked with little problem.

When you showed the ComboBox Tasks List did your choose to Use Data Bound Items, and select your Data Source from the list?

Thanks for your response! I found that what I really needed to do was close the solution and open it back up. Solved everything.
