I want to create string using array,
Ex: update table set name=@name,address=@addr,age=@age etc.
I want to create this command using array because every time the update command is different for different tables. So i want to write command only one time.

Please any one help me in this regard.

Thanks in Advance

use Dictionary for this put column name as key and the corresponding value-
void Runcommand(string tableName,Dictionary<string,object>updatevalues, string wherecaluse)
  SqlCommand cmd=new SqlCommand(conn);
  cmd.CommandText="update "+tableName +" Set ";
  bool isAdded=false;
  foreach(string key in updatevalues.keys)
      cmd.CommandText+=", ";
    cmd.Parameters.Add(new SqlParameter(key,updatevalues[key]);
  cmd.CommandText+=" where "+whereclause;

hope this will work for you.
