Need some help to create a simple logic statement to determine if a datatable contains a column with a specific name.  If the column does not exist, then I want to create it.  If the column does exist, skip the “Add” routine.  I think this can be done very easily, but I don’t know the correct syntax to use for the "IF" statement.   Thanks for the help!
If  (Column “Address” does not exist then Add it)
dt.Columns.Add("Address", typeof(string));
