Hi
I am using an OracleDataAdapter to populate a dataset to return some data from the database
In the other times I have used this I have used a datagrid or drop down and bound the the control to that.  This time i need to extract from the dataset one single field into a text box.

How do I extract the data from a dataset to get a single value?

regards

Could explain further as to what the single value will represent?

textbox1.DataSource = dataset.datatable
textbox1.DisplayMember = "column"

you would then have forward and back buttons to move through the dataset

 Thanks for that. I did not have a primary key set up so I used

ds.tables(0).rows.item(0)

the dataset only had one record

thanks to you all for replying

cheers
