Updating Dataset

I would like to update the dataset row. I have 5 rows in my customer table and want to update a particular row for which I will be sending the customerId(primary key)
I have
myDataSet.Tables("Customer").Rows(RowId)("ContactName")="Haritha"
Now how shd I get my RowId.
Or Is there any other method to update the dataset.
And also can I update the database imm after the above line using
myDataAdapter.Update(myDataSet, "Customer")
Thanks

Haritha,
What do you mean by "getting RowID"? Are you talking about getting the autoincremented identity column value that is created after the record is added.

To update record, you can make changes to the record in DataSet/DataTable and use Update method to make the changes. DataColumns keep track of the values that were changed and based on that build the UPDATE query when Update command is used.

Yes RowId, is what you meant, autoincremented identity coloumn. But how can I trace this value for a particular customerid

Abt the update method, can u give me a sample code.
I had been using the Command object,with ExecuteNonQuery() method. This will execute the database directly. I need a code to update DataSet.
Thanks.

To get value of autogenerated column value, take a look at the folowing link

Following is an example that I wrote for some project. It should give you idea on how to use Update command to update data in table. Ignore the statements that don't make sense.



public bool UpdateAuthorLastName (string strID, string strLastName)
{
     bool bRetVal = true;
     string strConn = "Provider = SQLOLEDB.1; Data Source = SULTAN\\ADONET;" +
     " uid=nkk; pwd=nkk; Initial Catalog = pubs";
     string strSelectCmd = "SELECT au_id, au_lname FROM AUTHORS WHERE au_id='" +
     strID + "'";
     string updateCmd = "UPDATE AUTHORS SET au_lname = '" +  strLastName +  "' WHERE au_id = '" +  strID + "'";
try
{
// Create the connection.
OleDbConnection oledbConn = new OleDbConnection(strConn);
// Create the DataAdapter call Fill method to get the record.
OleDbDataAdapter dtAdapter = new OleDbDataAdapter (strSelectCmd, oledbConn);
dtAdapter.MissingSchemaAction = MissingSchemaAction.AddWithKey;
dtAdapter.RowUpdated += new OleDbRowUpdatedEventHandler(OnRowUpdatedEvtHndlr);
dtAdapter.RowUpdating += new OleDbRowUpdatingEventHandler(OnRowUpdatingEvtHndlr);
DataSet dtSet = new DataSet("Authors DataSet");
dtAdapter.Fill (dtSet, "Authors");

// Update the record in the table.
DataRow authorRec = dtSet.Tables["Authors"].Rows[0];
authorRec["au_lname"] = strLastName;

// Get the original and current value for the field.
string originalValue = (string)authorRec["au_lname", DataRowVersion.Original];
string currentValue = (string)authorRec["au_lname", DataRowVersion.Current];
bool bValueChanged = (string.Compare (originalValue, currentValue) != 0);

// Attach the DataAdapter to CommandBuilder for automatic
// generation of UpdateCommand.
//OleDbCommandBuilder cmdBldr = new OleDbCommandBuilder (dtAdapter);
dtAdapter.UpdateCommand = new OleDbCommand (updateCmd, oledbConn);

// Commit the changes made to the datasource.
int iRecsUpdated = dtAdapter.Update (dtSet, "Authors");
Trace.WriteLine ("Number of records updated = " + iRecsUpdated);

}
catch (OleDbException ex)
{
bRetVal = false;
Trace.WriteLine ("OLEDBEXCEPTION: " + ex.Message);
}
catch (Exception ex)
{
bRetVal = false;
Trace.WriteLine ("EXCEPTION: " + ex.Message);
}
return bRetVal;
}
