Are you looking to store the hashtable in a database with each pair as a row (key in one column, value in another), or in a single cell (serializing the hash table and storing it in one place)? I don't believe there's any way to store it as a set of pairs without iterating over the table and dealing with each key/value pair (maybe an ORM like NHibernate could do it, but I don't suspect it could), but to serialize it to the database, you can use the code at the following link:
