I am a beginner in c# and would like to know how to loop through records in a db. It could be a recordset, etc. I need to be able to loop through items in a db table and update a filed in that row.
OdbcConnection con1 = new OdbcConnection(ConnStr);
 
            OdbcCommand cmd1 = new OdbcCommand("SELECT * from testupdate", con8);
            con1.Open();
            cmd1.ExecuteNonQuery();
            con1.Close();

Use a datareader
OdbcConnection con1 = new OdbcConnection(ConnStr);
 
            OdbcCommand cmd1 = new OdbcCommand("SELECT * from testupdate", con8);
            con1.Open();
            OdbcDataReader dr = cmd1.ExecuteReader()
            
            // To loop through
            while (dr.Read())
            {
                // deal with the data here
            }
            dr.Close();
            con1.Close();
