Visual Basic 2005

Making the painful transition from VB6.....

In VB6, returning a field value could be done like so:

SomeString$=datTable.recordset.fields("FieldInTable")

Damned if I can figure out the equivalent in 2005.

you mean:
YourTableAdapter.Fill(yourdataset)
yourdataset.Tables(0).Rows(0)("FieldInTable")   should return the first row's value...
If I remember correctly...
