RowFilter and DataColumn Named as Number

Hi All,

I have a column in my datatable that is named like a number i.e. 45

I know its not good to have a column named as number, but...

Anyways, so when i set the DataView's RowFilter to some thing like
"45='blah'"

System.Data.Eva luateException is raised with message "Cannot perform '='
operation on System.Int32 and System.String." .

Why is it taking a ColumnName as integer or am i missing something.

Lets say DataColumn was initialised somehting like this new DataColumn("45" )

Anybody got any idea. I have tried "[45]='sadf'" and i currently cant change
the column name to some proper string.

<sorry for cross post>

Thanx in advance

rawCoder,
Why is it taking a ColumnName as integer or am i missing something. Because 45 is an integer!

Consider:

"45=blah"

Where blah is also a column name. Are you comparing column 45 to column blah
or are you comparing the integer 45 to column blah? Hint the first operand
does not have to be a column name!
Anybody got any idea. I have tried "[45]='sadf'" and i currently cant
change
the column name to some proper string. Use [] to delimite the column name in your row filter itself.

Dim view As DataView
view.RowFilter = "[45]='blah'"

Works in VS.NET 2003 as expected

Hope this helps
Jay

"[45]='blah'" did work, missed it due to my mistake when I tried it earlier.

Thanks

For a DataView.Rowfilter can I use more than one expression? I want to filter out two different things. For example can I take: dv.RowFilter = "MTX <> 'Customer Forcast'" and dv.RowFilter = "MTX <> 'Actual vs. Forcast'"
