Good Day Experts!

I have a DataTable only contains 1 record.  In the past, I have only used for each loop to process the DataTable.  

For Each sqlRS In sqlRStbl.Rows


How can I just get the row from the DataTable?

does this loop give you errors?

For Each sqlRS In sqlRStbl.Rows


It shouldn't. If it does, do like ged325 suggested:

Dim dr as DataRow
If sqlRStbl.Rows.Count > 0 Then
End If

Open in new window

I was not sure where you wanted to store the results so i used a DataRow

Thanks for replying. I was not getting an error with the loop.  I had always processed DataTables with a ForEach loop.  But this DataTable is only being populated with 1 row of data.  I just never knew how to interrogate the DataTable for only 1 row.

 This all stems from when I was using a DataReader that I couldn't close before calling a subroutine.  I passed the subroutine the connection string used by the DataReader and was trying to execute a DataReader on that same connection and was getting an error.  So, I converted the DataReader to a DataTable in the calling routine to alleviate the problem.  

Thanks for the help,
