Class to database

I have an array of Class. How can I create a table in an Access database with the content?

My class lets say for simplicity has two string variables as follows:

Public Class Test1
  Public Field1 As String
  Public Field2 As String
End Class


Dim ArrT(10000) As Test1
Dim objTest1 as new Test1
Dim objTest2 as new Test1




Now that I have a full Array of a class, is it possible to create a table in Microsoft Access and write the contents to it?

OK Here is a sample code

Dim ConStr As String = "Provider=....... Your Connection String"
Dim QStr as String
Dim Cn As New OleDbConnection (ConStr)
Dim Cmd As New OleDbCommand("Create Table DynamicTable (Field1 Text(100), Field2 Number)", Cn)
   'I have taken a text and a Numeric field, First Col would be of type Text of size 100 second is Numeric
Cmd.ExecuteNonQuery  'Table Created Here
For i As Integer=0 To ArrT.Length - 1
     QStr=String.Format("Insert Into DynamicTable (Field1,Field2) Values ('{0}', {1})", ArrT.field1, ArrT.field2)

That's it
One more thing, since I have looped for all the elements in the array ArrT make sure all the elements of the array are initialized. your eg above shows array of size 10000, so if you really have 10,000 elements make sure they all have values.

There'd be a couple of problems with this code

For i As Integer=0 To ArrT.Length - 1
     QStr=String.Format("Insert Into DynamicTable (Field1,Field2) Values ('{0}', {1})", ArrT.field1, ArrT.field2)

First, Cmd is not given the new CommandText.  Second, ArrT is not given any index.  I think it should be

For i As Integer = 0 To ArrT.Length - 1
     QStr = String.Format("Insert Into DynamicTable (Field1,Field2) Values ('{0}', {1})", ArrT(i).Field1, ArrT(i).Field2)
     Cmd.CommandText = QStr

And the Try/Catch block is not completed.

Otherwise, I agree ;-)
