For the main part, the DataSource controls are incredibly easy to work with. You just drag them onto your page in Design View, wire them up to a connection and provide some kind of command (ad hoc sql query or the name of a stored procedure - saved query in Access), then link them to a databound control on the page using its DataSource property. Then you run the page and all your data appears. But what if you want to get at one or more values from the returned data to do something else with it, like display it in a control that doesn't expose a DataSource property?

If you have centered web pages, there can be times where the depth of content doesn't reach the bottom of the window browser, so no scroll bar appears. Navigating between long and short pages can give the appearance of the centered content "jumping" from side to side.

If you are creating a new ASP.NET application, but have a huge collection of existing content in html files, one option is to move all the content into a database and generate pages dynamically. However, migration to a database can be a time-consuming task depending on the volume of content. So wouldn't it be easier to somehow import the relevant parts of the existing html pages into your aspx page?
