Thanks, Paul. This is one of those questions where I'm glad I don't have my full name exposed...embarrassing. As someone who is brand new to web programming, I think I have been overwhelmed at times trying to learn by reading and trial-and-error alone
such a daunting set of technologies all at once . I know about the ToList() need from my WinForms work.
I appreciate the reminder/heads-up on the linq deferred execution. It never registered that a debugger examination might be misleading for that reason (even in the Immediate Window?).
Last, I understand not being a fan of colorful language such as "blow up" in the absence of the detail, but I did mention the all-important invalid cast exception. I guess I picked up this colorful language as a mainframe systems programmer in the 60s,
and hey, the lengthy bright red exception message in the console log does kind of look like an explosion. :-)
Anyway, thanks again for the help. Now on to the next faux pas. Steve
