Hi,

Im trying to find a quick way of getting the field number from just having the field name using sqlClient.sqlDataReader.

I could do a loop though each field untill I reach the correct field then pass back the index number, but I was wonder if there was an easier way?

[example - my current solution]
Function ReturnFieldIndex(byval Name as String, byval DataReader as sqlClient.sqlDataReader) as Integer
  For a = 0 To DataReader.FieldCount - 1
     If DataReader.GetName(a) = Name Then
         Return a
     End If
  Next a
End Function
