I have a dataset.  It could have 50 rows or 50,000 rows.  I want to create a temp table in SQL Server 2k that holds my data so that I can run a few stored procs on it and shoot out some summary data.  What I need to know is if there is a way to get the data from my dataset into a sql temptable.

Thanks

Are saying that you would put the data into XML and then try to create the table with XML?  Can you give more more detail on what you are thinking?

well thats one way other wise just use maketable in sql to make the table and then update it with your dataset data.  Although it seems like a lot of wasted overhead to create this table each time.  Why not just create the table in your db and clear it each time before you add the new data?

Public Function CreateCmdsAndUpdate(myDataSet As DataSet, myConnection As String, mySelectQuery As String, myTableName As String) As DataSet
    Dim myConn As New OleDbConnection(myConnection)
    Dim myDataAdapter As New OleDbDataAdapter()
    myDataAdapter.SelectCommand = New OleDbCommand(mySelectQuery, myConn)
    Dim custCB As OleDbCommandBuilder = New OleDbCommandBuilder(MyDataAdapter)

    myConn.Open()

    Dim custDS As DataSet = New DataSet
    myDataAdapter.Fill(custDS)

    ' Code to modify data in DataSet here

    myDataAdapter.Update(custDS, myTableName)

    myConn.Close()

    Return custDS
End Function 'SelectOleDbSrvRows

or use xml as previously suggested


IF you are using SQL Server

You can take the data in the dataset and write it to an XML string
http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/d...atasetasxml.asp

then pass that xml string to a stored procedure.
once you have the xml string you can use OPENXML to
insert your data

Ex

CREATE PROCEDURE spTest
@xmlData TEXT
AS
DECLARE
@xmlDocReturn INT

exec sp_xml_preparedocument @xmlDocReturn OUTPUT, @xmlData

INSERT INTO MyTable
(...)
SELECT
...
FROM OPENXML (@xmlDocReturn,'/ROOTTAG/ELEMENTTAG')
WITH (...)

exec sp_xml_removedocument @xmlDocReturn
