In this scenario, will the break cause the finally to be skipped?

foreach (Xceed.Grid.DataRow dr in this.gcResults.DataRows)
				foreach (Xceed.Grid.DetailGrid dGrid in dr.DetailGrids)
					foreach (Xceed.Grid.DataRow drSub in dGrid.DataRows)
						if (Convert.ToBoolean(drSub.Cells[6].Value) == true)
								//expire the old record
								//insert the new record
							catch (Exception ex)
								MessageBox.Show (this,"Failure To Write Record | " + ex.Message,"Commercial Bag PA Bulk Update",MessageBoxButtons.OK,MessageBoxIcon.Warning);
								if (c.State != ConnectionState.Closed)

break where?

anyhow, break will only terminate the closest loop or switch, so it will only terminate that. it will NOT skip the finally.

Finally will ALWAYS be executed, even returning a function from inside the try..catch will still execute the finally code
