Good Day Experts!

I have a requirement for my project that I have not experienced before.  My experience with DataGridViews in the past have been executing a command, filling dataTable and then assigning as the DataGridView dataSource.  

Now,  I need to execute many queries and either keep filling the dataTable that populates the DataGridView or keep sending the output of each query to the DataGridView via a dataTable.

Is either of these scenarios possible? If so, do you have any recommended reading?

Thanks,

Can you elaborate? You can fill a datatable as many times as you want and grid will refresh automatically whenever datatable is changed.

MyCmd.CommandText = "Query to execute"                          
DADups.SelectCommand = MyCmd
DADups.SelectCommand.Connection = SQLConnect
DADups.SelectCommand.ExecuteNonQuery()
DADups.Fill(DTDups)

I want to do this multiple times and keep adding to the DTDups DataTable.  Then when done ading to the DataTable set it as the DataSource to the DataGridView.
Would the line "DADups.Fill(DTDups)" overwrite the previous data or just add to what was there from the previous execution?

No.

>DADups.SelectCommand.ExecuteNonQuery()
>DADups.Fill(DTDups)

You do not need the ExecuteNonQuery call.
