i am using vc2005 and sdl 2005.  
i need to update and add a table to an sql database only if a the Data Table name does not exist in the database.
I want to loop all the Data Table of an existing sql db and verify that the name exits. If the name does not exist i want to add a new data table.
If the Data table exist i will also want to add data to the table champ.
i  need  the code in c#
for now my code is like that

///////////////////////////////////////////
else if (rbUpdate.Checked==true)
                        {
                    try
                    {
                    string namedb = cmbDataName.Text;
                    SqlConnection con1 = new SqlConnection("Data Source="+this.txtServName.Text.Trim()+";Initial Catalog="+namedb+";Integrated Security=True");
                    SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand();
                    cmd.Connection = con1;
                    cmd.CommandType = CommandType.Text;
                    con1.Open();

                    // need to write the Data Table test here and to add data if the table exist
                    // my db name is : named
                    // i open the server, how do i open the database ?


                    con1.Close();
                                           
                    }
                    catch (Exception ex)
                    {
                        MessageBox.Show(ex.Message);
                    }
}
