Need Help.

I have a DataTable with a integer field called SortOrder.

This table is loaded with and XML file.

I have this table in a DataView and I set the RowFilter to filter some row,
then I change the SortOrder, set the Sort property to "SortOrder".

This works fine the first 20 to 50 times. Then I get this error.

This error does not occur if I do not set the Sort property to SortOrder.
If I set the Sort property to another column or blank the error never
