I am processing data from an Excel file using ADO and a DataReader.

How can I fill a list when looping through the rows?


    class MyList
    {
        public string Area { get; set; }
        public string Category { get; set; }
        public string Right { get; set; }
        public decimal Amount { get; set; }
        public string Notes { get; set; }
    }

List<MyList> list = new List<MyList>();

while (dbReader.Read())
                {
                    string area = dbReader.GetValue(columnArea).ToString();
                    string category = dbReader.GetValue(columnCategory).ToString();
                    string right = dbReader.GetValue(columnRight).ToString();
                    string amount = dbReader.GetValue(columnAmount).ToString();
                    string notes = dbReader.GetValue(columnNotes).ToString();
                    // fill the list with values
                }
