Please put your code between the [code] Tags
Second, your probably have about 20 lines there....which line and which object threw that error is unknown !!

  1.      private void showClientListForUser()
  2.         {
  3.             string[] fkeys = new string[2];
  5.             fkeys[0] = txtUserName.Text;
  6.             fkeys[1] = txtUserCompanyNumber.Text;
  8.             DataSet ds = new DataSet();
  9.             DataRow dr = null;
  11.             for (int i = 0; i < dsMain.Tables["UserClient"].Rows.Count; i++)
  12.             {
  13.                 dr[i] = dsMain.Tables["UserClient"].Select("UserID="+"'"+fkeys[0]+"'"+ "and CompNo= " + fkeys[1]); // err
  15.               //  dr = ds.Tables[0].Rows[i];
  16.                 lvwClientsForUser.Items.Add(Convert.ToString(dr["CompNo"]));
  17.                 lvwClientsForUser.Items[i].SubItems.Add(Convert.ToString(dr["ClientNo"]));
  18.                 lvwClientsForUser.Items[i].SubItems.Add(Convert.ToString(dr["CNAME"]));
  19.             }
  20.         }
Secondly: This is a pretty weird one; at first glance, it would seem that dsMain.Tables["UserClient "] doesn't exist, so Select gets called on a null reference; but within the for, .Rows.Count gets called without any problems. If I were in your place, I'd run a debug session to figure out exactly what's going on in there.

that is becuase before the for loop u declared dr = null
and in the first statement in your for loop you are trying to assign dr[i]
when dr itself is null, dr[i] will definitely throw errors :)

They're right, you never assign anything to your DataRow dr.
So Instead of:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. dr[i]=
Try using:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. dsMain.Tables["UserClient"].Rows[i]=
