SPWeb curweb = cursite.OpenWeb();        SPQuery curQry = new SPQuery();        curQry.Query = "<where><eq><FieldRef name='status'/><value type='CHOICE'>Not Started</value></ep></where>";        SPList mylist = curweb.Lists["Task"];//Task is the name for the list.          SPListItemCollection curitems = mylist.GetItems(curQry);          foreach (SPListItem curitem in curitems)          {              string resultitem = curitem["Title"].ToString();              Console.Write(resultitem+"\n\r");          }        if (curweb != null)        {            string title = curweb.Title;            Console.Write(title);        }                                }
