In this blog we will discuss how to Access data using ADO .NET and make changes to it.

Coding
using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.ComponentModel;
using System.Data;
using System.Data.SqlClient;
using System.Drawing;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;
using System.Windows.Forms;
 
namespace UpdatingData
{
    public partial class Form1 : Form
    {
        public Form1()
        {
            InitializeComponent();
        }
 
        private void Form1_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        {
 
            SqlConnection conn = new SqlConnection(
               @"Data Source=yourServerName;user id=UserName;password=Password;" +
               "Initial Catalog=DatabaseName");
 
            SqlDataAdapter thisAdapter = new SqlDataAdapter(
               "SELECT EMPNO,ENAME FROM EMP", conn);
 
            SqlCommandBuilder thisBuilder = new SqlCommandBuilder(thisAdapter);
 
            DataSet ds = new DataSet();
 
            thisAdapter.Fill(ds, "Employee"); 
 
            Console.WriteLine("name before change: {0}",
               ds.Tables["Employee"].Rows[5]["ENAME"]);
 
            ds.Tables["Employee"].Rows[5]["ENAME"] = "Johnson";
 
            thisAdapter.Update(ds, "Employee");
 
            Console.WriteLine("name after change: {0}",
               ds.Tables["Employee"].Rows[5]["ENAME"]); 
        }
    }
}

 

Here,

   SqlConnection conn = new SqlConnection(
    @"Data Source=yourServerName;user id=UserName;password=Password;" +
  "Initial Catalog=DatabaseName");

 

The above block of code is SQL – Server specific connection String to the database

SqlDataAdapter thisAdapter = new SqlDataAdapter(
"SELECT EMPNO,ENAME FROM EMP", conn);

Here we create a DataAdapter object to Operations such as Update

SqlCommandBuilder thisBuilder = new SqlCommandBuilder(thisAdapter);

The SqlCommandBuilder is used to build SQL statements

DataSet ds = new DataSet();

Here, we create a DataSet object to hold data.

thisAdapter.Fill(ds, "Employee");

In the above statement we will the DataSet with the query we have previously defined for the DataAdapter.

Console.WriteLine("Name before change: {0}",ds.Tables["Employee"].Rows[5]["ENAME"]); 

Displaying the data before change

  ds.Tables["Employee"].Rows[5]["ENAME"] = "Johnson";

In the above line, we change the data in Employee table, row 5 with the column name ENAME

 thisAdapter.Update(ds, "Employee");

Here we make a call to the Update command to make the changes permanent to the database Table.

Console.WriteLine("Name after change: {0}",ds.Tables["Employee"].Rows[5]["ENAME"]);

 

Thanks for reading
