Hi!

Greetings to everyone. This is my first post at the forum.

I have a small issue concerning the output data from the tabs table. A small part of the output is shown correct in the combobox; the rest is shown as pipes "||||"
so any clue, what might help!!

here is part of the code segment:


Dim oradb As String = "Data Source=OPERA;User Id=vendome;Password=vendome;"

Dim conn As New OracleConnection(oradb)

Try
conn.Open()
Dim cmd As New OracleCommand()

cmd.CommandText = "select table_name from tabs"
cmd.Connection = conn
cmd.CommandType = CommandType.Text

Dim rd As OracleDataReader = cmd.ExecuteReader
While (rd.Read)
CMB.Items.Add(rd.GetValue(0))
End While

Catch ex As Exception ' catches any error
MessageBox.Show(ex.Message.ToString())
Finally
conn.Dispose()
End Try
