I have read in a very large text file and have extrapolated the data that I need using the Mid command.  I know need to write this data to multiple tables in my database.  I have studied how to do it using ADO.net but I am wandering if there is a single SQL update command that I can use without having to use the ADO structures and commands.  Here is how I believe I will have to do it using ADO.  Please show be a better way.

            Dim myAdapter As New SqlDataAdapter
            myConnString = "Data Source=localhost;Initial Catalog=NewTaks;User Id=sa;"
            Dim myConnection As New SqlConnection(myConnString)
            myConnection.Open()
            '''''Write Record.......
            'Dim studentInfo table as DataTable = New Datatable ("StudentInfo")
            'Dim importDataSet as DataSet = New Dataset("importDataSet")
            'Dim studentInfoTable as DataTable = importDataSet.Tables.Add("StudentInfo")
            'studentInfoTable.Columns.Add("admDate", Type.GetType("System.Date"))
            'newRecord = importDataSet.newrow()
            'newRecord("admDate") = "05/04/2004"
            'importDataSet.Rows.Add(newRecord)
            'studentInfo.AcceptChanges()
            'myAdapter.Update(importDataSet)

I have commented most of the lines just so I can get the lines of code out and review them before I put them in place.


Thanks
Kenny
