I am new to .net.I want to create a table and populate the data into the table using sqlserver.So please provide me some sample easy basic code so that i can try on my own.


Please use the code:

string queryString =
"SELECT CustomerID, CompanyName FROM dbo.Customers";
SqlDataAdapter adapter = new SqlDataAdapter(queryString, connection);

DataSet customers = new DataSet();
adapter.Fill(customers, "Customers");

You could then access the table as;

DataTable dt = customers.Tables[0];

Hope this helps you!

This example uses a winforms with a TextBox (called myTextBox) and a DataGridView (called myDataGridView)
>            using (SqlConnection con = new SqlConnection(strConnect))
                using (SqlDataAdapter da = new SqlDataAdapter("SELECT MyColumn1, MyColumn2 FROM myTable WHERE mySearchColumn = @SEARCH", con))
                    da.SelectCommand.Parameters.AddWithValue("@SEARCH", myTextBox.Text);
                    DataTable dt = new DataTable();
                    myDataGridView.DataSource = dt;

You will need to provide the connection string to SQL (strConnect) and tailor the code to your exact requirements.

string connectionstring = " Data Source=01HW235982\SQLEXPRESS2008;Initial Catalog=adarsh;Persist Security Info=True;User ID=sa;Password=Pass@123";

SqlConnection con = new SqlConnection(connectionstring);

SqlCommand com = new SqlCommand("INSERT INTO EMPLOYEE_TABLE(EmployeeID,Name,Address) VALUES (@EmployeeID, @Name,@Address )", con);

com.Parameters.AddWithValue("@EmployeeID", "122");
com.Parameters.AddWithValue("@Name", "m1");
com.Parameters.AddWithValue("@Address", "mj3");

Check the 01HW235982\SQLEXPRESS2008 part. The way I do it is:
Try setting up a connection in VS with the Server Explorer pane:
1) Open Server Explorer.
2) Right click "Data connections" and select "Add connection"
3) In the dialog that follows, select your DataSource, and database, specify the security info, and press the "Test connection" button.
4) When the connection works, press "OK"
5) Highlight your database in the Server Explorer pane, and look at the Properties pane. A working example of the connection string will be shown, which you can copy and paste into your app or config file.
