    Hi all,

    The code snippet below always results in an object reference error and I can'f figure out why.

    IQueryable<Product> categoryProducts = currentCategory.ProductsInChildCategories;
    var products = (from p in categoryProducts
             join cp in context.CustomerPrices on p.ProductId equals cp.ProductId
            where p.LockedSince.Equals(null)
             && (customerIdForPrices <= 0 || cp.CustomerId == customerIdForPrices)
             && cp.MinimumQuantity == 0
             && (manufacturerId <= 0 || p.ManufacturerId == manufacturerId)
             && (!HideCombinationProducts || !p.IsCombination)
             && (eANCode == String.Empty || p.EANCode.Contains(eANCode))
             && (onStock <= 0 || p.OnStock > 0)
             select new
                 ProductId = p.ProductId,
                 Name = p.Name,
                 Description = p.Description,
                 ActionPrice = cp.ActionPrice,
                 Price = cp.Price,

    If I change the code so that I query an OpenAccess context like 'from p in context.Products', it works perfectly.
    Any idea what's going wrong?

    Hello Erik,

    Can you please provide us with some more details about the currentCategory instance? What is its type and where does it come from - is it an OpenAccess persistent object?  Please also share the implementation of the ProductsInChildCategories property. By default OpenAccess does not generate properties of type IQueryable<T>, so if you have added this property manually, the problem could be that the actual type of this collection cannot be cast to IQueryable<T>, therefore the property returns null.

    Kind regards,
