I want to to retrieve a column value from a table.
Thanks for help.

            string[] list = DataAccess.ExecuteReader(commandtext).ToArray();
 public static List<string> ExecuteReader(string commandtext)
        {
            List<string> sVal = new List<string>();
            try
            {
                using (SqlConnection cnn = new SqlConnection(conn))
                {
                    cnn.Open();
                    using (SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand())
                    {
                        cmd.Connection = cnn;
                        cmd.CommandType = CommandType.Text;
                        cmd.CommandText = commandtext;

                        using (SqlDataReader reader = cmd.ExecuteReader())

                }
            }
