Hi All

I have a C# datatable populated by a SQL statment.

Say the datatable has returned a 100 records and there are five coloumn headers, how do I just display record 50, coloumn 2 from the datatable

I'd guess something like Console.Write(MyDatatable.rows[50].Coloumns[2])

but it's just not happening

Its going to be base 0 so you'll want this.

MyDataTable.Rows[49].ItemArray[1].ToString();
