Stupid question of the day...

How can I make the following linq statement into a straight vb statement

I'd like the results to be a datatable

            Dim Query = _
            (From Region In dataset1.Tables(0) _
             Where Region.Field(Of String)("Region") <> "" _
                    Select Region.Field(Of String)("Region") _
             ).Distinct().OrderBy(Function(item) item).ToList

Do you want to convert it to ADO.NET code to populate datatable or do you want to convert the result of this LINQ query into a datatable?

It is currently giving you a list of string which you can loop through.

The end goal is something that a rabid "anti-linq" person could use.

You've been answering my questions for quite some time...I don't care one way or the other personally.

From your "anti-linq" usage, I am assuming you want to get rid of the query.

If I remember correctly, you know how to use a tableadapter to populate a datatable so its a matter of constructing a sql query like below

SELECT DISTINCT Region From Regions Where Region Is Not Null And Len(Region) > 0 Order By Region

Thanks.

I wrote the linq query with some EE help.

The other team members hate linq for some reason and want it out.
