Get Subset DataTable From Main DataTable, But Preserve Primary Key & RowErrors?

Apr 16, 2012

I came across a problem with using a BindingSource as my DataGridViews.DataSource. Whenever I applied a filter to a column in the BindingSource and the user makes changes that don't match the column filter the DataGridViewRows would automatically disappear. A similar thing would happen when applying a Sort to a column. If the user made any changes the DridGirdViewRows would automatically sort causing rows to be moved around. This was not ideal for my application and there isn't anyway to stop this from happening with the BindingSource.

To correct this issue I have to use subsets of data. I use a DataView to apply the filter and sort to the main DataTable, which creates the subset DataTable.The problem is when I use the DataView.ToTable method I loose the Primary Key and RowError information. So I have to reapply this information everytime the user filters or sorts the DataGridView.Is there a better way to get a subset DataTable?[code]...

C# - Adding A Way To Preserve A Comma In A CSV To DataTable Function?

May 17, 2010

I have a function that converts a .csv file to a datatable. One of the columns I am converting is is a field of names that have a comma in them i.e. "Doe, John" when converting the function treats this as 2 seperate fields because of the comma. I need the datatable to hold this as one field Doe, John in the datatable.

Function CSV2DataTable(ByVal filename As String, ByVal sepChar As String) As DataTable
Dim reader As System.IO.StreamReader
Dim table As New DataTable
Dim colAdded As Boolean = False

Properly Set A Primary Key For A Datatable?

Apr 16, 2012

I have imported a single table of a database into a dataset. I would like to find a row containing a specific value and then update some of the data in several columns of that row. When I use the code below, I get this message:"System.Data.MissingPrimaryKeyException: Table doesn't have a primary key."

The first block of code is where I setup my connection and paramters. The updateDB sub is where I want to perform the update. The database was setup in SQL Server. If I have a primary key specified for the database in SQL Server, shouldn't it carry through with the data adapter fill?

Primary Key, Looking For Data Sentence In Datatable?

May 26, 2009

I am new at, so I would be glad, if anybody could help me in this case... I scanned already the internet for answers, unfortunately with no success..I have a grid view, and this is loaded by a sql data table, this table has 2 keys (RezeptNr and Zutatnr). When I wanna update a row in the data grid, the RowUpdating event fires, so I need to read the Basket Session, what has the complete object stored. I put this in a DataTable (dt1), so far so good..The problem is line: Dim dr As System.Data.DataRow = dt1.Rows.Find(id) Here the compiler alerts, that I have two keys, and he cannot select the data sentence with the find method. I tried it with command, that works, but then I have the data sentence in an array, but I need to update the data row of the data table.

.net - SQLDataAdapter Filling Datatable With Primary Key Produces Error And Exits Sub?

Aug 12, 2011

Ok so this is going to take some explaining. The process I am trying to do is grab data from a table function in SQL and then fill a dataset with the returned values. I then have to run this query twice more to query an alternative number table. Then add to the same table as the previous queries.This needs to be as fast as possible, so I am currently using an adapter.fill to populate the datasets and then a dataset.merge to put them all into one table.

The problem is the query can return duplicates which waste time and space, because of this I made column 3(part_ID) the primary key to stop duplicates.When this is run with the .merge it quits at the first instance of a duplication and doesn't continue with the population.

Datagridview Bound To A Datatable Setting Its Datasource Property To The Datatable

May 20, 2011

I have a datagridview bound to a datatable setting its datasource property to the datatable.

Tableadapter.fill(datatable) Fills The Row That Was Not Added To The Datatable

Aug 6, 2010

I am trying to add NewRow to the database by using datatable in dataset, but before I do that I want to make sure that row is not already there. I create new row for the datatable I am working with, fill it with information. I fill datatable with the row from database that has the same primary key as my NewRow by using tableadapter.fill method, but when I do that my NewRow that was never added to the datatable is filled with information from database(and not information that I assigned to it). I count rows in my datatable before I fill it and it's 0, so why is my NewRow affected by Fill command? (I am using VB.NET 2005 Framework 2.0)

DataTable.GetChanges After DataTable.Merge?

Not certain what exactly I am doing wrong here, but I am having problems in setting a new DataTable (for posting back to the database) to the Changes resulting from the Merge proc of 2 DataTables. The code works fine until I attempt to set the ChangesTable --- it always ends up = Nothing.What is strange is that the "preMergeCount" = 0 and the "postMergeCount" = 23, which is EXACTLY how I expect it to be! So I know that the Merge is working correctly.
