I have a number of nested detail tables. All of the levels of nesting show data except the deepest level. I verified the DataReader being used contains the correct data, it simply doesn't show up.

Hi David,

When binding each detail table view, RadGrid fires the DetailTableDataBind event. The argument for a DetailTableDataBind event handler carries all the information you need for binding the detail table, including the table view that should be bound, its parent item, and so on.

Examine the following demo and help article for details:
Hierarchical data-binding using DetailTableDataBind event
Programmatic Binding
