VB.net 2.0 - Dynamic TableAdapater

OK, Here is my situation!

I added a NEW DataSet call "Temp" I added a NEW DataTable called "Temp_DataTable" using and added one column.

Now when I right click I'm unable to add a Table Adapter to write a query to Fill/GetData from my NEW DataTable?

What I'm trying to do is I'm currently reading a Text File into a DataTable and once all the records have been loaded I want to run a SQL Statement on that DataTable to weed out the duplicate records, so how can I accomplish this?

Thanks,
Mark

>to weed out the duplicate records

Use DataTable.DefaultView.ToTable method

OK, Thanks CodeCruiser!
That is some pretty good stuff, but I'm curious if there is a way I can do it using either the Wizard or SQL Statements.  See example of a SQL Statement I'm currently using in the Wizard on a thick database and would like to do something similar to a DataTable.

Currently on some other programs I write out the records to a database and use a SQL Statement to Group to weed out the duplicate records...in the example I gave you I want ALL the duplicates so I can write out a log showing all the duplicate records to provide to the group.

Thanks,
Mark

So you want to find out all the duplicate entries?

One way is to use LINQ

Dim duplicates = dt.AsEnumerable().GroupBy(Function(r) New With { _
	Key .a = r(0), _
	Key .b = r(1) _
}).Where(Function(gr) gr.Count() > 1)
lbMsg.Text = "Duplicate Record found for Rows: " & [String].Join(", ", duplicates.[Select](Function(dupl) dupl.Key))

Open in new window

OK, but remember my subject line...I'm using Visual Studio 2005 (.net 2.0) I didn't think I could use LINQ in this version?

Yup missed that. You will need to do some manual work in that case.

1) Export to another datatable with distinct option
2) Loop through this new datatable and set RowFilter on original datatable
3) Check the count of defaultview after row filter and if its more than 1 then you got duplicates.

OK...I guess I need to upgrade, because I hate manual work!
I appreicate your suggustions and I'll see what I can do in the mean time to report out my duplicate records...I was hoping there was an easier way that I was missing, but I guess not.

Thanks,
