Populate a DataSet from an AccessDataSource

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 29, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

This very good piece of code was posted last week as a solution to populating a Data Set with an Objectdatasource.

I am now trying to populate a Data Set from a AccessDataSource.

But replacing the ObjectDataSource with an AccessDataSource doesn't seem to work.

What modifications to the code are needed please !?

Private Function GetDS(ods As ObjectDataSource) As DataSetDim 
ds = New DataSet()
Dim dv = DirectCast(ods.[Select](), DataView)
If dv IsNot Nothing AndAlso dv.Count > 0 Then
Dim dt = dv.ToTable()ds.Tables.Add(dt)
End IfReturn dsEnd Function

Introducing ADO.NET and the Typed DataSet

In reviewing the applications it seemed everything they were doing involved database reads, writes, and manipulation. The development staff had been reviewing the articles and code samples for ADO.NET. They had spent many years refining their existing ADO based infrastructure and perfecting their use of ADO

Create and Use a Typed DataSet by Using Visual C# .NET

This article shows you how to create and use a typed DataSet in a small Web application. Typed DataSets, which inherit from the DataSet class, create first-class members of a DataSet's DataTables and DataColumns, yielding the many benefits that come with the use of strong typing.

Persist large dataset across ASP.NET pages. No database


Can anyone give me suggestions on how to implement the following requirement?

1. A online wizard (step-by step operation) processes user requests across several ASP.NET pages.  The session data is stored in memory until the user submits the request.  Once the request is submitted, a XML file is created and the data are passed to XML.

# Case Study: The parent page has a "select" button.  Click "select" will pop up a child page.  The users can select 1000+ items from a datagrid in the child page.  Once the user clicks "confirm", the selected items in the child page will be populated to the selected item gridveiw in the parent page.  The user can keep selecting more in the child page and the selected items will be appended to the gridview in the parent page.


- What's the best way to extract strings from a text file and convert to a dataset in memory and then present it in a datagrid in UI?

- What's the best way to persist and manipulate a large dataset across pages?  Session? or ViewState? Can it be accomplished by LINQ?

The app doesn't interact with a DB.  Once the request is submitted, it will convert the in memory data to a XML file.  What technology can be used to accomplished this?&nb

Using a trigger or anything else to populate two tables


Hi! I'm creating an application that's supposed to first add a record to table1, and then get the ID from that record to use when adding a record to table2, to be able to associate these two records with eachother.

The user gets to type in some values that goes to table1, and some values that goes to table2, but before the insert statement for table2 is executed i need the ID from the recently added record in table1. Some dude told me to use a trigger for the autopopulate purpose, but does that really work when i also need to save some values that's user input, and when those values doesn't get saved in table1?

Are there any other way to do this or can i send values to a trigger? I'm new to triggers and stored procedures, i don't have any particular knowledge of this, any help is appreciated!

Why not Dataset use to Saving?


Hie Friends,

I have searched on net and even i worked on 2 huge shipping projects.

Everywhere i found that while binding data to control use dataset but when we save, they recommend use command (use generic collection and create command object with store procedure) why not we use dataset as in .NET 2.0 it is improved lot and data adapter has new feature batchupdatesize.

why we need to create property page which maps to all column in a database.

E.g. if i have employee table with empid and empname in database then i use to create emp.cs with properties of empid and empname and use same properties for saving. If i use these properties for validation in business rule then no problem. But why we use them in saving for creating command object.


DAL Dataset showing all the column


I follow the tutorial and create DAL with Dataset. I created a Table Adapter with many column, but when i Call a simple Get for 2 column only. The system display 2 column and the rest column with empty data.

My question is that will this affect the performance? because i only need 2 column.

example: Table with 40 column define in Dataset in DAL. I have GetMember from Dataset with 40 column, some request only 1 column (with 39 empty), some request 22 column (with 18 empty column). Will this affact the performance?

Should i create a seperate DatasetAllColumn, Dataset1Column, Dataset22Column ?? so system only return exact column i need. and hofully the performance is optimized to it best.

Is it possible to populate property choices from a database?


I'm creating my first server control, and have it working where I can set up an enum and the user can set a property's choices,  based off of that enum.  But I'd like it to pull records from a database and populate the list of choices for the property from a database.  This would allow me to add a new "Host System" to the database, and the other designers wouldn't have to get a new copy of the dll.
