I am new to .NET .
I have to get two column of data from a table on an SQL-Server. I have to add them up and display the result in an HTML table.

Note: I am not using a gridview!

Thank you!

Just bind datasource with returned query result to gridview. It will be rendered as a HTML table only.

using System.Text;//namesspace
using System.Data;

public void ConvertToHtml(DataTable dt)
StringBuilder sb=new StringBuilder();
sb.Append("<'td'>ColumnFirst<'td>ColumnSecond /td /tr>");
for(int i=0;i'<'dt.Rows.Count;i++)
sb.Append("<'tr><table><tbody><tr><td>"+dt.rows[i][ColumnFirst]+"/td /tr");
sb.Append("<'tr><table><tbody><tr><td>"+dt.rows[i][ColumnSecond]+"/td /tr");
Div1.InnerHtml=sb.ToString();// add this to div runat="server" in aspx page

//Note Remove All ' occurrence.
//give proper closing HTML Tag.

In your aspx page, add a label in the <td> part of the html table where you want to display the value. Initially set it's visibility to false.
After you get the values from the database, add them (that's easy).
Assign the value to the label and set it's visibility to true.

Let me know if I got your question wrong.

To select only 2 rows from sql server,
Select Top 2 from tablename

and add two rows in the sense what?
If columns datatype are decimal, integer, etc. then you can add in sql query only using Sum() operator.

Question changed
This is actually a fairly ambiguous question. Do you mean that you have to get the sum of both columns individually? If so, you would just use
SELECT SUM(Column1) As SumOfColumn1, SUM(Column2) As SumOfColumn2 FROM MyTable WHERE SomeCondition

You could easily have found this using google.

select top 2 * from table

EDIT =========================

This was the original text which I responded to:

Hi I am new to .net i have to get two rows of data from sqlserver table and i have to add both rows how can i get rows from table . i dont need all table info

You COMPLETELY changed the question, and then voted my answer a 1.

EDIT #2 =========================

I hope you saw the original version of this because the last sentence still stands. It's really too bad the thought police have endorsed your action by deleting my original message.
