Sort datatable

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 22, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

How do I sort a data table based on a particular column which has integer values in ascending order?


I wrote this:

'Sort the datatable based on sequence id

leadtable.DefaultView.Sort ="Id"

But it doesnt seem to work

Datatble is defined as:

leadtable = New DataTable("LeadTable")

        Dim leadid As New DataColumn("Id")
        leadid.DataType = GetType(Integer)
        leadid.Unique = True
        leadid.AllowDBNull = False
        leadid.Caption = "Id"

        Dim leadname As New DataColumn("Name")
        leadname.DataType = GetType(System.String)
        leadname.AllowDBNull = False

        Dim leadsizeget As New DataColumn("Size")
        leadsizeget.DataType = GetType(Integer)
        leadsizeget.AllowDBNull = False

        leadtable.PrimaryKey = New DataColumn() {leadid}

    How to bind GridView and DropDownList controls using DataTable object

    In .net framework 2.0, you can load a DataTable in memory by consuming a data source using a DataReader. In this version you will find the flexibility in accessing the DataReader means write access code once and use again and again using DataReader. To see the functionality of DataTable consider an example that is created using VS2005.

    DataTable - Load from IDataReader - CreateDataReader - ReadXml WriteXml - Free ADO.NET Tutorials

    The DataTable in ADO.NET 2.0 has been seriously beefed up and I absolutely love it. Not everything we consume deals with multiple resultsets and requires the ever popular DataSet. With the cool new features in the ADO.NET 2.0 DataTable, we can get many of the cool features in the DataSet without all the extra baggage and memory footprint particular to multiple resultsets.

    Datatable in session


    I am creating a simple shopping cart using a datatable that is passed into a session object.  I have a small mini cart that displays the total number of items in the cart as well as the running total - this is displayed in a web control.  When the web control starts up I run a try/catch to see if the session object exists, if it doesn't I create the datatable for the cart and store it in the session.  I then have a datalist control that contains all the information for my products including an "add to cart" button.  When the page loads everything looks fine.  If I click on an "add to cart" button nothing happens to the session information.  If I click on it again, the session information updates - displaying only one item is in the cart and then counts up correctly there after.  Additionally, after adding an item, if I select a different item in the list, the same issue occurs.  I am not sure why this is happeing, if anyone can give me an idea I would appreciate it.

    While Importing Excel 2007 file to Datatable - headerrow problem


    Hi there,


    I am trying to simply extract an excel data from an uploaded file an put it into a datatable. In this case the excel file has 3 rows but when I fill the datatable I only see row count of 2.

    I tried changing HDR:NO; to HDR:YES and vice versa, but no luck. 

    What am I doing wrong? (Note: the excel file cannot have a  headerrow)


    string connstr = "Provider=Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0;Data Source=" + pFilePath + ";Extended Properties=\"Excel 12.0;IMEX=1;HDR:NO;\"";
                OleDbConnection conn = new OleDbConnection(connstr);
                DataTable dtTables = conn.GetOleDbSchemaTable(System.Data.OleDb.OleDbSchemaGuid.Tables, null);
                string strTablename = dtTables.Rows[0]["TABLE_NAME"].ToString();
                string strSQL = "SELECT * FROM [" + strTablename + "]";
                OleDbCommand cmd = new OleDbCommand(strSQL, conn);
                DataTable dt = new DataTable();
                OleDbDataAdapter da = new OleDbDataAdapter(cmd);
                //At this point row count=2 which doesn't make sense

    DataTable --> Oracle DB



    Can someone offer advice on the below? 

    I am connecting to an AR Server and pulling out data into a DataSet.  There will be 15 different DataTables within the set.  I would like to find a way to either insert the entire DataSet or each DataTable into an Oracle table.  The Oracle table has the same format as the DataTables I'm creating.
