DataTable schemaTable = cn.GetOleDbSchemaTable(OleDbSchemaGuid.Tables, new Object[] { null, null, null, "TABLE" });
                //List the table name from each row in the schema table.
                for (int i = 0; i < schemaTable.Rows.Count; i++)
                    string Current_Str = schemaTable.Rows[i].ItemArray[2].ToString();

Have a look at this[^] OleDbSchemaTable sample. You should be able to use it to get all the details you are looking for.

It should not be too difficult to convert into C#.
You can always use a a tool to do so otherwise.

This link is no more there. Please update thanks
Try as below code. It will give you all the Column Names and their DataTypes belonging to your DataTable - "schemaTable". Then use it in the way you want.

StringBuilder sbColumnDetails = new StringBuilder();
foreach (DataColumn column in schemaTable.Columns)
  sbColumnDetails.Append("Column Name: ");

  sbColumnDetails.Append(" ");

  sbColumnDetails.Append("Column DataType: ");

 sbColumnDetails.Append(" || ");

This gives me the names of the columns of the Schema and not the required table. thanks
