I have a datatable with a column named desc1. desc1 is not unique, but I would like to return an array of datarows using the select method. I've used this select expression

"desc1 = 'something'"

But that returns all the rows that have desc1 = 'something', but I want only the rows with distinct values for desc1.

like, a select distinct statement.

Is there any way to do this in the filter expression?

Hi,
 DataTable.Select, method can handle only Expression , sorting and DataviewRowstates. U cannot use  this Select method to obtain distinct values in a batch of records.  Probably wht  u can do is that loop through The Datatable and remove the duplicated values. But the best way is to do that before filling the Datatable. I.e., change the query which u have used to fill up the datatable in such a way that select distinct values
