Unexplained error when databinding

P: n/a
I am using a DataSet as the DataSource of a DataList in my code. The SQL
used to get the data from the database begins with:
SELECT
members.organization,artists.artist,artists.email, artists.website,members.email
FROM members INNER JOIN artists ON members.memberid=artists.memberid WHERE
Notice that both tables involved in the SELECT statement have a field named
email. First, I do not know how to specify which one I want in my
databinding expressions (I tried DataItem.artists.email and
DataItem.members.email, but that gave me an error too). Second, I know that
my DataSet is getting filled correctly because my first databinding
expression worked (see line 71 in the error). My error is as follows:
Server Error in '/' Application.

The reason you aren't finding 'email' is because SQL databases assign an
arbitrary column name if you have two matching names, or they leave the
qualifier in the name, such as artists.email and members.email. Try
assigning new names to the columns in your SQL statement, like "select
members.email m_email, artists.email a_email" and then use the new
column names in your binding.

Dont forget to clean up the garbage code left behind in the "Windows Form
Designer Generated Code.

Seems to be a problem with VS not doing it when you regenerate the DA's

Today I cleaned up some 2000 lines of code in there. Big diff in
performance.

That is something I never would do. The method of ng is in my opinion the
right one.

Just my thought,

Why not? Wouldn't it make things a little easyer to inerpret and provide
for less aliases?

Change this:

SELECT
members.organization,artists.artist,artists.email, artists.website,member
s.email
FROM members INNER JOIN artists ON members.memberid=artists.memberid

to this:

SELECT m.organization, a.artist, a.email As AEmail,
a.website, m.email As MEmail
FROM members m
INNER JOIN artists a
ON m.memberid = a.memberid

This is called aliasing the tables and the columns that have the same
name (notice that I put an "m" after members and an "a" after artists;
these are the aliases for the tables). Your datatable (in the dataset)
will use the aliased named (Aemail and Memail). This way you can leave
your database as is.
