Connection within connection

I have a table that stores general information on employees. I have a related table that stores actions of those employees. What I would like to do is make a list of employees + their actions.

I wanted to do something like this:
Dim cnAccess As new OleDbConnection("provider=...")
Dim sSelect As String
sSelect = "SELECT * FROM tblEmployees"
Dim cmdSelect as New OleDbCommand(sSelect, cnAccess)
Dim drEmployees As OleDbDataReader
drEmployees = cmdSelect.ExecuteReader()
Do While drEmployees.Read()
'get name
'get address
'open a new connection to the database, select * From tblActions, executereader, etc.

Now, if I try this, the moment it comes to the second executereader, it gives an error that there can only be one executereader open at a time.
How can I make this work?

First off - the rule is

One DataReader - One Connection
What would be a more efficient solution would be to do an inner join of the two tables in your sql statement
Something like:
SQL = "Select tblEmployees.FirstName, tblEmployees.LastName, tblActions.Actions from tblEmployees INNER JOIN tblActions on tblEmployees.ID=tblActions.ID"

Dim cnAccess As New OleDbConnection("Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OleDb.4.0;Data Source=C:\HSF\AIVC_websites_v05.mdb")

Dim sSelect As String
sSelect = "SELECT tblWebsites.WebsiteID, tblKeywords.KeywordEN, tblKeywords.KeywordID FROM tblKeywords INNER JOIN (tblWebsites INNER JOIN tblWebsiteKeywords ON tblWebsites.WebsiteID = tblWebsiteKeywords.WebsiteID) ON tblKeywords.KeywordID = tblWebsiteKeywords.KeywordID"
Dim cmdSelect As New OleDbCommand(sSelect,cnAccess)
Dim drWeb As OleDbDataReader, sbResults As New StringBuilder()
drWeb = cmdSelect.ExecuteReader()
Do While drWeb.Read()
Dim intWeb As Integer
intWeb = drWeb.GetInt32(0)
Dim cnAccess2 As New OleDbConnection("Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OleDb.4.0;Data Source=C:\HSF\AIVC_Websites_v05.mdb")
Dim sSelect2 As String
sSelect2 = "SELECT tblWebsites.WebsiteID, tblCountries.Country, tblOrganisationTypes.OrganisationTypeNL, tblWebsites.WebsitePublications, tblWebsites.WebsitePayment, tblLanguages.[Language], tblInformation.WebsiteAddress, tblInformation.OrganisationName, tblInformation.WebsiteComment, tblInformation.SoftwareTools, tblInformation.ElectronicNewsletter, tblKeywords.KeywordNL, tblWebsiteKeywords.Relevance FROM (tblOrganisationTypes INNER JOIN (tblKeywords INNER JOIN (tblCountries INNER JOIN (tblWebsites INNER JOIN tblWebsiteKeywords ON tblWebsites.WebsiteID = tblWebsiteKeywords.WebsiteID) ON tblCountries.CountryID = tblWebsites.WebsiteCountry) ON tblKeywords.KeywordID = tblWebsiteKeywords.KeywordID) ON tblOrganisationTypes.OrganisationTypeID = tblWebsites.WebsiteOrganisationChar) INNER JOIN (tblLanguages INNER JOIN tblInformation ON tblLanguages.[LanguageID] = tblInformation.[LanguageID]) ON tblWebsites.WebsiteID = tblInformation.WebsiteID WHERE ((tblWebsites.WebsiteID) = " & intWeb & ")"
Dim cmdSelect2 As New OleDbCommand(sSelect2,cnAccess2)
Dim drDetails As OleDbDataReader
drDetails = cmdSelect2.ExecuteReader()
lblResults.Text = sbResults.ToString()

This is what I did, and it works fine until it reaches the drDetails.GetString(1)). Then I get the following error:
No data exists for the row/column.
Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about the error and where it originated in the code.
Exception Details: System.InvalidOperationException: No data exists for the row/column.
Source Error:

Line 38: drDetails = cmdSelect2.ExecuteReader()
Line 39:
Line 40: sbResults.Append(drDetails.GetString(1))
Line 41: sbResults.Append("<br>")
Line 42: sbResults.Append(drDetails.GetString(2))

If i take the query from sSelect2 and copy it in an access query, it works. I don't get it, what am i doing wrong?

never mind, I added a Do While to the second datareader and it works perfectly now. 

Thanks for the help,

I am trying to use the Visual Studio.Net data connection tool to connect to an Access database on a network server, not on my client machine. I've tried everything I can think of but nothing works.

problems with connections to access via ADO.NET in VS.NET
For anyone familiar with this book, I am having trouble with some code in Chris Payne's "SAMS Teach Yourself ASP.NET in 21 Days", which calls for me to use ADO.NET to connect to an Access database I had to create for the "In Review" project after the second week. The code goes like this (within the first subroutine): dim Conn as new OleDbConnection("Provider= Microsoft.Jet.4.0; Data Source=C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\TYASPNET\banking.mdb") Now I've tried this, along with setting up a connection through the server explorer in Visual Studio.NET.

Recycling connections in a ADO.Net connection pool
I have a requirement where I will need to get a handle on the existing connections in a particular ADO.Net connection pool (identified by the unique connection string) and close and open them one by one.

Access a TCP connection from an HTTP server connection?
I have two Component::Server::TCP servers running (A and B). Server B needs to write to a connection on server A. A's connections have a unique md5 id assigned to their heap. B should located a connection on A based on it's unique id, then write some data to it. I'm able to locate the server as follows: $server = $poe_kernel->alias_resolve('tcp_server'); I'd then planned to do something equivalent to the following: foreach my $conn ($server->getConnections()) { if ($conn->{heap}->{'uniqueID'} eq $requestedID) { $c...

OpenVPN no connectivity after connecting
My goal with the OpenSuSE machine I have set up is to be an OpenVPN server. So far so good, I have started the server and I am able to connect a Mac client (running TunnelBlick) to the server. However the client doesn't have any connectivity, I can't ping any addresses for example. The server is set up for bridging instead of routing as I want the remote client to get an IP address in the same range as the rest of the LAN. The client is getting an IP address from the range specified in my server.conf file, so that's a start, but the client can't talk to anyone. ...

XP Remote Access Connection Manager required to connect?
I don't want anyone remotely accessing my computer. However, this service must be running in order to dial with my dialup modem (SanyoUSB modem, a cellphone connected to the USB port). Is this service necessary only for the SanyoUSB, or for other dialup connections too? Yep, Remote access is so that your computer can connect to another computer. For some one to connect to your computer you'd need to have software running that would answer the phone connected to your computer and start a session. "geekhead" <> wrote in message news:...
