Not sure how/or best way to do this. I have a datatable with part of the data needed (look at code). The code works. But now I want to run another LINQ query something like this

Dim TList = From TL In dc.vwTL
          Select TL.DOD, TL.Test

and now update my Datatable with the TL.Test info.  I actually have many other columns that will need to update the datatable the same way to include calculations.  Using VB 2008 framework 3.5.  had a simular question. Thanks in advance
Dim TMDODList = From TM In dc.vwCurrent_datTMs _

                        Select TM.DOD
 

            ResultsTable = New DataTable("Results")
 

              'Create the cols for the table

            ResultsTable.Columns.Add("DOD", GetType(String))

            ResultsTable.Columns.Add("Test", GetType(Integer))
 

            For Each DOD In TMDODList

                ResultsTable.Rows.Add(New Object() {DOD})

            Next

I am not sure if i understand your question correctly but if you need to update a column value in the datatable then something like following code could be used.

This is a demo code.
for each T in TList

    ResultsTable.DefaultView.RowFilter = "Test=" & T.TestID

    If ResultsTable.DefaultView.Count = 1 Then

       ResultsTable.DefaultView.Item(0).Item("DOD") = TList.DOD

    End If

    ResultsTable.DefaultView.RowFilter = ""

Next

CodeCruiser,
It looks like your example will work but I get an error on the the second line (for the Rowfilter).
The error is "Cannot find Column(A1).
A1 is the value for the first DOD. I need to filter on DOD not Test. It seem like that should work. Any Ideas

In the RowFilter, you specify the column caption not value. If its varchar type then try this


ResultsTable.DefaultView.RowFilter = "DOD='" & T.DOD & "'"

I had to adjust code for nullable value but answer is just what I was looking for.
If T.Test.HasValue Then ResultsTable.DefaultView.Item(0).Item("Test") = T.test
Thanks alot. Was getting ready to go back to using Store Procedure
