How can I write a datatable's content as an XML String for storing in a database? The only examples I found were for writing to an XML file.

Hi ZekeLA,

You'll need to write the XML to file, then read that file using a TextReader or something....

    Dim tmp As String = My.Computer.FileSystem.GetTempFileName
    YourDataSet.WriteXml(tmp)
    Dim xmlString As String = IO.File.ReadAllText(tmp)

Regards,

Wayne

I didn't want to write to a file. Here is the solution I found from another site:

StringWriter stringWriter = new StringWriter();
dt.WriteXml(stringWriter, XmlWriteMode.WriteSchema);
string s = stringWriter.ToString();
