The below "foreach" SECTION works.

How can I make the below "for 1st" SECTION
add a . to anything that does not have a . ?
-----------------------------------------------------------
Basically I want the first line
below to be "1,2." instead of "1,2"

NAME,SSN,CHECKVIEWPAYDATE,CHECKVIEWDEDCODE,CHECKVIEWDEDAMT
"John Doe",1864,3/25/2011,1,2
"Jane Doe",1864,3/25/2011,1,2.88
-----------------------------------------------------------
        public bool ImportFileDeductions()
        {

            DataSet ds = ReadFile(filePath);

            foreach (DataRow row in ds.Tables[0].Rows)
                if (row[4].ToString() == "")
                    row[4] = 0.0;

            for 1st (DataRow row in ds.Tables[0].Rows)
                if (row[4].ToString() does not have a .)
                    then add a .

        }

// Rows[0] is the first row
if ds.Tables[0].Rows[0][4].ToString().Contains(".")
{
  ds.Tables[0].Rows[0][4] = ds.Tables[0].Rows[0][4].ToString() + ".";
}

Open in new window

[telepathy mode = on]
// May be you just need to add "." to every row (at 4th column), that doesn't contains "." ?
foreach (DataRow row in ds.Tables[0].Rows)
  if (!row[4].ToString().Contains("."))
     row[4] = row[4].ToString()+".";

Not entirely sure what you're trying to do, but maybe something like this:

public bool ImportFileDeductions()
{
	try
	{
		DataSet ds = ReadFile(filePath);
		if(ds.Tables[0].Rows > 0)
		{
			foreach (var row in ds.Tables[0].Rows)
				if (String.IsNullOrEmpty(row[4].ToString())) row[4] = 0.0;
			
			if(!ds.Tables[0].Rows[0][4].ToString().EndsWith("."))
				ds.Tables[0].Rows[0][4] += ".";
		}
	}
	catch(Exception e){ MessageBox.Show(String.Format("Unable to import file deductions!\n\n{0}", e.ToString()), "Error!", MessageBoxButtons.OK, MessageBoxIcons.Error );}
}

Open in new window


You may want to consider your datasource, and the types of values you're expecting.  If you're wanting to format your output to be a uniform amount of decimal places that are much more elegant and efficient solutions than this, such as the formatting methods of String.Format(), or the overloads of .ToString()

Hi!

You should try this:
                if (!row[4].ToString().EndsWith("."))
                  row[4] = row[4] + ".";

I prefer this code commented by Expert 35210054....

But u should u break condition , so that it will come out of foreach.. so that u can restrict unneccessary loop execution....
