what database server are you using?

when you say show you the details of the table do you mean the query "describe tblname" ?



I'm assuming you know how to create your connection string

public function describeTable(byval tblName as string) as dataset
   Me.myQueryString = "describe " & tblName

        myCommand = New MySqlCommand(myQueryString, myConnection)
        Try
            myDataAdapter = New MySqlDataAdapter()
            myDataAdapter.SelectCommand = myCommand
            ds = New DataSet
            myDataAdapter.Fill(ds, tblName)

            Return ds

        Catch ex As MySqlException
            MessageBox.Show("DB ERROR: Cannot Return Column See Error Trace" & Environment.NewLine & ex.Message, "DB ERROR", MessageBoxButtons.OK, MessageBoxIcon.Error, MessageBoxDefaultButton.Button1)

            ds = New DataSet
            Return ds


        End Try

end function


to call this function go

dim dSet as new dataset
dim pRow as datarow


dSet = describeTable("table1")

for each pRow in dSet.Tables("table1").rows

textbox1.text = pRow("ColumnName1").toString & "\t" & pRow("ColumnName2").tostring, etc. etc.
