    Hi there The Hashtable will only error when it has that key, so we just need to work out why! :) Have you tried checking what value is in the Hashtable with the duplicate key? (you can do that from the Watch window in Visual Studio) Also, you don't seem to be checking for the right condition in your loop? For instance, you're checking if hHospital2.Contains(row["HOSPID"].ToString() but then if it doesn't contain that, you're adding hHospital2.Add(row["HOSPID"].ToString()+"~"+row["HOSPADD"], ... as the key. Are you sure that's what you're wanting to do? Hope that helps
