c# error

The error reads: "Method must have a return type"

Here is the method:  I am new to c#.  What is wrong with this?

 private getDataSet(DataSet strqry)
        {
           DataSet dsData = new DataSet();
           string ConnectionString = "";
           ConnectionString = " Initial Catalog=CompassCustomer; Data Source=sqlserver5; " +
           "uid=asocefp; password=asocefp";
           
           SqlDataAdapter adapter = new SqlDataAdapter(strqry, ConnectionString);
           
            adapter.Fill(dsData);
            Return (dsData);
        }

you must provide the return type...

private DataSet getDataSet(DataSet strqry)
{
           DataSet dsData = new DataSet();
           string ConnectionString = "";
           ConnectionString = " Initial Catalog=CompassCustomer; Data Source=sqlserver5; " +
           "uid=asocefp; password=asocefp";
           
           SqlDataAdapter adapter = new SqlDataAdapter(strqry, ConnectionString);
           
            adapter.Fill(dsData);
            Return (dsData);
}

Hello dchau12,

vbsquickresponse is correct, though you also need to correctly type the input parameter as you are not passing in a DataSet:

private DataSet getDataSet(String strqry) {
 .....

Few thinks need to be change in above code...

1. Add return data type, incase this case DataSet type.
2. stryqry should be String - prividing SQL Query
3. adapter.Fill(dsData ,"TableName");
4. retrun dsData
private DataSet getDataSet(DataSet strqry)
{
    DataSet dsData = new DataSet();
    string ConnectionString = "";
    
    ConnectionString = " Initial Catalog=CompassCustomer; Data Source=sqlserver5; " + "uid=asocefp; password=asocefp";
           
    SqlDataAdapter adapter = new SqlDataAdapter(strqry, ConnectionString);
            
    adapter.Fill(dsData ,"TableName");
    retun dsData;
}
