How can I encrypt data and send it into sql for storage...then later query that data decrypt it and present the value.

I dont mean I need to know who to read and write from SQL..but rather how can I encrypt say a string value so I can save teh encrypted value to a table..then later decrypt that same value aftre retriveing it from the database.

I need a c# solution. Either code or at least a document that explains how to do this. I am NOT talking about encryption teh web config connection string...

The normal Microsoft documentation for the CryptoStream class gives you a pretty good example (code), as well as detailed information.
