How might I use DataTable  Row   ".ItemArray" property to check a column name before I attempt

x = MyRow.Item(myColumnNameVariable)

Purpose:  I want to make sure I haven't misspelled the column name when I pass it to this statement using varColumnNameVariable.

Any guidance on this would be appreciated.

Thanks!

hi,
sorry your question is not clear to me but i think you want to get column name from datatable,
you can use dataset.Table[0].Columns[0].ColumnName.

Thanks for input.  That looks right (I was just guessing about ItemArray).   I'll try it and post results.
