Add HashTable as Value inside another Hashtable

How can I reuse htFields inside the For Each loop?

I want to add htFields as the value for the matching key inside htTables




    dim htTables as New Hashtable()

    for each str as String in GetTableNames(conn)
      debug.WriteLine(str)
      htTables.Add(str,Nothing)
      conn.Open
      Dim cmd1 As OleDb.OleDbCommand = New OleDb.OleDbCommand("select * from " & str, conn)
      Dim dra As IDataReader = cmd1.ExecuteReader(CommandBehavior.SchemaOnly Or CommandBehavior.KeyInfo)
      Dim dta As DataTable = dra.GetSchemaTable()
      Dim myrow As DataRow
      For Each myrow In dta.Rows
        Debug.WriteLine("Column Name:  " + myrow(0).ToString)
        dim htFields As New Hashtable()
        htFields.Add(myrow(0).ToString(),false)
      Next
      htTables(str) = htFields

      htFields = Nothing
      dra.Close
      conn.Close
    Next

because you declare htFields inside the inner loop, it will only be accessible during that iteration, ie once out of the for each myrow loop the object htFields is not accessible

if you declare the htfields object outside the loop, you can use it inside the for each myrow loop and it will still exist outside that loop as well.

eg
dim htFields As New Hashtable()
 For Each myrow In dta.Rows
        Debug.WriteLine("Column Name:  " + myrow(0).ToString)
                htFields.Add(myrow(0).ToString(),false)
      Next
 htTables(str) = htFields
