Transfer Data from and to MS-Access, SQL Server, and XML Data Sources

Posted By:Creative13       Posted Date: September 29, 2011    Points: 200    Category: DataBase    URL: http://www.dotnetspark.com  

The Article shows the Transferring of data from one type of Data Source to another type of Data Source.


            Generally, Transferring Data From one Type of Data Source to another and vice-versa is required when an application may have to deal with different the data sources at a time.

            The article contains the simplest way to achieve the mentioned aim.




  •  Three DataGridView Controls to display data.
  • Six Command Buttons to Perform associated actions




  1. First we have to make some declaration as follows.


#region "Declaration"

                      //For Sql COnnection

SqlConnection SqlCon = new SqlConnection("Integrated Security=True;Initial Catalog=SqlDB;Data Source=.\\SqlExpress");

                      SqlCommand SqlCmd;


                      //For OleDb Connection

OleDbConnection OleCon = new OleDbConnection("Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;   Data Source=..\\..\\AccessDB.mdb;");

          OleDbCommand OleCmd;


        //For All DataSources

                    DataSet Dset = new DataSet();   //For XML DataSource

        DataSet Dset1 = new DataSet();  //For OleDb DataSource

        DataSet Dset2 = new DataSet();  //For SQL DataSource

                  DataRow row;



  1. After Declaration, Now we make a Procedure named LoadData () to initialize the data from different databases and to display it into respective DataGridView control.


    public void LoadData()



            //Load the data from MS-Access file to the dataGridView1

  OleDbDataAdapter OleAdapt =

new OleDbDataAdapter("Select * from User_Info Order By   UserID", OleCon);

            OleAdapt.Fill(Dset1, "User_Info");

            dataGridView1.DataSource = Dset1.Tables["User_Info"];



            //Load the data from SQL file to the dataGridView2

            SqlDataAdapter SqlAdapt =

new SqlDataAdapter("Select * from User_Info Order By UserID", SqlCon);

            SqlAdapt.Fill(Dset2, "User_Info");

            dataGridView2.DataSource = Dset2.Tables["User_Info"];


//Load the data from XML file to the dataGridView3


            dataGridView3.DataSource = Dset.Tables["UserInfo"];






  1. Figure 1 shows the data into respective DataGridView at form load

Figure 2 : Transferring a selected row from MS-Access Data Source to XML Data Source


Figure 3 : Transferring a row from XML Data Source to SQL Server Data Source




Figure 4 : Transferring a row from SQL Server Data Source to MS-Access Data Source







  1. To copy a row, first select the row from source DataGridView and click the respective button.

§  Figure 2 shows copying data from MS-Access to XML Data Source

§  Figure 3 shows copying data from XML to SQL Server Data Source

§  Figure 4 shows copying data from SQL Server to MS-Access Data Source


  1. We can also do the other operations mentioned in the program similarly as shown in Figure 1/2/3.





            In this article, we see the transferring of data from one data source to another in C# Programming. We can also perform other operations on mentioned title such as Moving, Deleting or Inserting the data of single record or may of bulk records also.
