I had the same problem. One of my columns was named "Name". I changed it to "Name_col" and the problem disappeared. Using "Name" conflicted with an existing member.

Please show us the line of code and several lines before & after. It sounds like you just need to use the Text property.
columnHeader1 = "Desc" would give you that error. Use
columnHeader1.T ext = "Desc"

I got this error too, it was choking on the this.name = "frmMain"; line when initializing the windows form. Turns out a control inside that form, a ListView, had a column that I had named "Name". Changing that to something else allowed the project to build without errors. Any idea why?

Hi, I am receiving the error when compiling the project, "cannot implicitly convert type object to string". The error points to this line of code and underlines the dtrRecipient: objMailMessage.To = dtrRecipient; I'm not sure why I am getting this error. Below is the complete code I am working with.
