u have already used the adapter right then u could use the adpater.fill(dataset) option to fill the dataset

u could alter the adpater.selectciommand to provide a custom select


if u want to update that table back to db u must also write adapter.insercommand and other commands

You can create  it at the back end , using the CREATE table statement

CREATE TABLE tableName (
urcolumn1 varchar(100)
,urColumn2 varchar(100) )
Go

in order to insert use the insert statement

INSERT INTO tablename
SELECT value1, Value2


B/w i am still confused , why you need to create it at the front end side

Just keep in mind that a SQL Table is not RAM.  All its accesses are made on disk.

In fact, I suggest you use datasets to create your table instead of SQL table...

the database X number of enters and this enter I need to display in the table in 2 columms and X numbers of rows. What would be the statment that to create a dynamic table in asp.net to get the information from the database.

I have created the sqlconnection, dataset, and the sqlDataAdapter created
then in the design layout I have add the tap for a Plase holder and in it I have placed the table for in to be X size.
now at the other page I have  declared the a values
values for the datarow, number of row, number of cells, ...

But how can I tell the table to go to the database look to see if there is a value in the database then to get one value and place it in the table and then to look at the database once more and if there is a other value to get it and place it in a other colunn and thengo back to the database look once more to add a new row if there is info to add then comtinue on.

how can I do so thing like this

Keep in mind that tables in a dataset do *not* have to have a corresponding SQL table in server side.  The main advantage is that they are pure RAM representations with filter capabilities.
