Hi

I'm just starting out with VB.net and ADO.net.  Although I'm getting everything to work, the code seems very long winded.  For instance this is my code to check the number of records in a dataset set table and add a blank record if it is 0.
'
  Dim intRecCount As Integer
        OleDbDataAdapter1.Fill(MemberDataSet1)
        intRecCount = Me.BindingContext(MemberDataSet1, "Members").Count
        If intRecCount = 0 Then
            Dim dr As DataRow
            dr = MemberDataSet1.Tables("Members").NewRow
            MemberDataSet1.Tables("Members").Rows.Add(dr)
            Me.BindingContext(MemberDataSet1.Tables("Members")).EndCurrentEdit()
            OleDbDataAdapter1.Update(MemberDataSet1.Tables("Members"))
        End If
'
It works Ok but it seems a lot of code.  This is just an example - all the code I'm generating seems as complex.  Am I missing something?

Hi Petermcg001:
What about removing the binding part of it?

This is slightly shorter:

 Dim intRecCount As Integer
        OleDbDataAdapter1.Fill(MemberDataSet1)
        intRecCount = MemberDataSet1.Tables(0).Rows.Count
        If intRecCount = 0 Then
            Dim dr As DataRow
            dr = MemberDataSet1.Tables(0).NewRow
            MemberDataSet1.Tables(0).Rows.Add(dr)
            OleDbDataAdapter1.Update(MemberDataSet1)
        End If

Another alternative is to use a command object with the appropriate INSERT SQL statement instead

    If intRecCount = 0 then
        Dim cm As New OleDb.OleDbCommand("INSERT INTO Members .....", cn)
        cm.ExecuteNonQuery()
    End IF

Hi..

The Alternative Option is what i use most.

When you just want to need to insert the data in the table than better use the xxxCommand object than using the Dataset it is good if you want ot Dispaly data and for select querys with some data otherwise better use the xxxCommand Object for select Max, min ave, or Insert, update and than refresh your dataset for display is what i use though not very sure how good it is in terms of the Speed on server and bandwidth utilization if run on Client server arctiechture.... but run ine on single machine or even if only about 100 user are using your program at one time
