    Hi all,
    I have added a new Item in my Solution Test.sql which has got
    some sql scripts and i have changed the Build Action Property of the
    file to embedded Resources

    private string GetSql(string Name)


    // Gets the current assembly.

    Assembly Asm = Assembly.GetExecutingAssembly();

    // Resources are named using a fully qualified name.

    Stream strm =
    Asm.GetManifestResourceStream(Asm.GetName().Name + "." + Name);

    // Reads the contents of the embedded file.

    StreamReader reader = new StreamReader(strm);

    return reader.ReadToEnd();



    i wrote this function to read the Embedded Resource when it executes
    the Stream Reader it gives an Error


    Can any one let me know where i went wrong

    Thanks in Advance

    A quick guess. You are using Asm.GetName().Name this returns the name of
    the assembly, not necessary what you want. What you want is the
    Namespace.FileName of your resource. Namespace will be the default
    namespace you assigned your assembly. Also, make sure that Name specifies
    an extension. You should also look at closing your reader.
