Dear guys,
I have a small prob when trying to load datareader object into datatable
special if the object of datareader have column of LONGTEXT DataType "am use mysql database"
when convert datatype to "Text" the problem is solved,
My questions :
1- what's the difference between LONGTEXT and TEXT?
2- how to fix this problem without convert the datatype to TEXT?

The Error Message at DataTable.GetErrors() is "Column 'photo_file' exceeds the MaxLength limit."

The error says it. ou have a LONGText block. The size of that object is larger than a string value can hold. Like trying to parse a 64bit int in a 32 bit. After some number this fails

Just do not use a DataReader...
Use a DataAdapter and a DataSet...
Something like:

MySQLConnection conn = new MySQLConnection(connectionstring);
DataAdapter adapter = new DataAdapter("SELECT * FROM TEST", conn);
DataSet ds = new DataSet();
DataTable table = ds[0];

I am not sure, but you must download the mysql connector...
