Dear all,
Iam developing an application where iam using Sql Server 2000 as the database. Iam using c#.net for programming my application. Actually we need to compare two tables with similar structure, to do this iam pulling the data from the database in two different datasets. Now my query is how can we compare these two datasets having tables with same structure.
If there is an alternative or good solution do provide me with that.

compare the two tables using any sql query will be much better and faster

Like


select Name  from table1 left outer join table2 on Table1.id = table2.id where table2.somefield is null
