Dataview sort problem

Posted on 2006-07-11

I put the results of a running a stored procedure into a dataset. I then created a dataview to be able to sort:

dim dv as new dataview
with dv
   .table = objDataSet.tables("spResults")
   .sort = "ChargeNumber desc"
end With

I load the table into my datagrid. Works fine. sorted and everything. The problem is, I'm trying to load the results into an excel spreadsheet from the dataview but it won't sort.

for dtRow = 0 to dv.count - 1
   osheet.cells(3, 1).value = dv.table.rows(dtrow).item("Charge")
   .....
and so on

My guess is when I use
   dv.table.rows(dtrow).item("Charge")
it is looking at the first record of the dataview before it was sorted.
How can I change this? I need to go by the sorted order.

Thanks

Yes, you are getting the data from the table, which is not sorted, rather than from the dataview, which is sorted.  Try this instead

        For Each drv As DataRowView In dv
            osheet.cells(3, 1).value = drv("Charge")
            'and so on
        Next

Roger, how many people get that wrong about the DataView.Table property?  It is not very intuitive, now is it?

No, it's not very intuitive.

I reckon a large part of the problem is DataRow cf DataRowView.  "Data is in DataRows which are in DataTables: DataRowViews are different, and therefore a bit frightening.  I'd better get back to the table."  But the only real difference is that a DataRow can have data in different .RowStates whereas a DataRowView is restricted to one.  And although it is possible to look at (in a DataTable) or choose (for a DataView) other .RowStates than Current, I wonder how many people ever do that for real.

Sermon over.  It's my bedtime ;-)

Thanks. Reading your other commit, I was trying to pull from the table rather than the DataRowView. Guess I better read up on DataViews again. Thanks again....
