Fill SQLDataAdaptor from IList

I am using the property attached as the datasource for a RadGrid.

...datasource for grid...
 grdAvailableForSale.DataSource = PendingOrdersStore


I need to fill a SQLDataAdaptor with this data so I can insert all the records into a SQL Table

How do I fill the SQLDataAdaptor?
Protected Property PendingOrdersStore() As IList(Of Order)
        Get
            Try
                Dim obj As Object = Session("AFS_VB")
                If obj Is Nothing Then
                    obj = GetOrders()
                    Session("AFS_VB") = obj
                End If
                Return DirectCast(obj, IList(Of Order))
            Catch ex As Exception
                Session("AFS_VB") = Nothing
            End Try
            Return New List(Of Order)
        End Get
        Set(ByVal value As IList(Of Order))
            Session("AFS_VB") = value
        End Set

The SQLDataAdaptor is the connection between between the database and the datatable. It is used to fill the data table and to update the database with changes to the datatable.

The datatable is what you would set as the datasource of the control.
Here is an example

Yeah..I had found that and a few other examples.
Right now I have a datatable being filled with the code that is attached and I verified that the rows are there in the Watch WIndow
 
However...whan I'm trying to "fill" my SQLDataAdapter with this code...

Dim da As New SqlDataAdapter
da.Fill(GetSearch())
 
I am getting this error
"The SelectCommand property has not been initialized before calling 'Fill'."
Can someone help me out here?

Public Function GetSearch() As DataTable
        Dim list As IList(Of Order) = ShippedOrdersStore()
        Dim t As New DataTable()
        t.Columns.Add("afsSource", GetType(String))
        t.Columns.Add("afsSourceDetail", GetType(String))
        t.Columns.Add("afsDate", GetType(Date))
        t.Columns.Add("afsAmount", GetType(Double))

        For Each s As Order In list
            Dim row As DataRow = t.NewRow()
            row("afsSource") = s.afsSource
            row("afsSourceDetail") = s.afsSourceDetail
            row("afsDate") = s.afsDate
            row("afsAmount") = s.afsAmount
            row("afsStatus") = s.afsStatus

            t.Rows.Add(row)
        Next

        Return t
    End Function

if you are trying to update the sql server with what is in your datatable you need to use da.update(GetSearch())

you will also need to set the da.insertcommand  property.

I am assuming you created a connection to the database.
