Problem Displaying Data Using Repeater Control

Problem Displaying Data Using Repeater Control

Hi There,
I am trying to display data from an SQL database using the Repeater control in, but I’ve run into some difficulty. Primarily, when a user selects an item from a menu, data from an SQL table is displayed using Gridview – this works perfectly ok. Additionally, I want a subset of the Gridview data to be displayed  using the Repeater control - this is where I have the problem: the two sets of  data  are not  displayed simultaneously when a menu selection is made. Instead, the data from the previous menu selection is displayed. In short, the Repeater data lags behind the Gridview data.

Sub Page_Load
    If Not Page.IsPostBack then
    Dim SQLstring As Object
If MenuSearch = "selected item" Then
        SQLString = "SELECT * FROM ProductsTab " & _         
           "WHERE OuterCategory = '" & MenuSearch & "' " & _
        "IF OBJECT_ID(N'ProductsDB..BrandsTab') IS NOT NULL " &     
         "DROP TABLE BrandsTab " & _
"SELECT Brand, COUNT(*) AS BrandCount INTO BrandsTab FROM ProductsTab " & _             
           "WHERE OuterCategory = '" & MenuSearch & "' " & _
         "GROUP BY Brand "
    SqlDataSource2.SelectCommand = SQLString
   End If
End Sub
Note: Data from ProductsTab is displayed in Gridview, data from BrandsTab is displayed in Repeater. The subset of selection from ProductsTab is saved in BrandsTab.
The Repeater code is:-
<asp:Repeater runat="server" id="Repeater1" DataSourceID="SqlDataSourceBrand" OnItemCreated="Repeater1_ItemCreated" >
        <asp:Label Text='<%# Eval("Brand") %>' runat="server"/>  
        <br />        
<asp:Label Text='<%# Eval("BrandCount") %>' runat="server"/>    
I hope the above code helps to explain my problem. I would greatly appreciate any help.
