Hello, new to .Net (using c#). I know how to return a dataset and display it in a number of different ways, but I have a stored procedure that returns only an integer and I don't know how to just return that one integer from my method without returning the dataset and looking at that specific row/column in the table, which would be 0,0. Isn't there a simpler way, so that if my stored procedure will always only return one row and one column, my integer, that I can just return that value?

thanks in advance!

SqlConnection nwindConn = new SqlConnection("Data Source=localhost;Integrated Security=SSPI;" +
                              "Initial Catalog=northwind");
                        SqlCommand  command = new SqlCommand("InsertProc",      nwindConn);
                        nwindConn.Open();

                        Int32 count = (int32) command.ExecuteScalar();

Here "InsertProc" is the name of the strored proc. ExecuteScalar method is used to return a single value
