There is already an open DataReader associated with this Command which must be closed

P: 1
I am using visual studio 2012 with SqlServer 2008.
while developing a website, i used datareader
when i wanted to use the datareader again for reading another table data from the same database, i get the error"There is already an open DataReader associated with this Command which must be closed first".
I have used datareader.Close(), it does not help;
I have used datareade.Dispose(), this also does not help;
I have also used using( Datareader ----) it was no help;
I have also used try ( --- ) catch (SqlException)
still i get the same error,
Can any one help. I am stuck because i need to read data a number of times in this web site.
any kind of help or alternative to read data from same database multilpe times will be appreciated.

I don't use .Net much so I probably can't answer the question but I know that whoever can answer your question won't be able to because you haven't shown us the code that produces the error.

Hey yogeshraj, datareader.Close() method should work.

You cant perform any operation with datareader result.if you want to perform any action with result then you have to use dataset and fetch result with foreach and perform action..

Thanks & regards,
