    Hi Suchiedu,

    Thanks for your post!

    According to your description, you are troubling with retrieve data from SQL DataBase.

    Do you use the method of ExecuteReader()?

    If so, please check the state of SqlConnection. The state of SqlConnection should keep opening while you using ExecuteReader() to retrieve data.

    Here is a simple sample below that may benefit you:

     using (SqlConnection conn = new SqlConnection(ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["MessageInfoConnectionString"].ConnectionString))
                    SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand("select * from  EmptyDb", conn);
                    SqlDataReader r = cmd.ExecuteReader();
                    while (r.NextResult())
                        object s = r[1];

    If you still have the issue, please provide your code to me.


    Best Regards
