was wondering if my explanation bellow is correct
string SQL = @" insert into User_Activity_Log
            values('" + UserName + "', '" + UserID + "' ,getdate(), '" + action + "' ,'','" + IP + "')";
  SqlConnection con = Main.GetDBConnection();
// Create a connection to SQL Database with intance con

            DataTable consultantTable = new DataTable();
//Create a table in memory called consultantTable

            SqlDataAdapter Consultantdataadapter = new SqlDataAdapter(SQL, con);
            Consultantdataadapter.Fill(consultantTable);
//Fill the consultantTable with the SQL querry in memory....  Does that mean it actually populate the database?

I don't think so.. as you are not doing any activity at database end, apart from just logging in a user activity table..

you must be doing some other thing.. like loading of some other database table with configuration values in memory, so that object gets referred else where in the execution of the program further..

no and also you have no commande parameters adding any value to the table

for example

cmd.Parameters.Add("@username", System.Data.SqlDbType.NVarChar).Value = username.Text;


additionally your not executing the query
cmd.ExecuteNonQuery();

I imagine the code you have will simply throw an exception if you tried to run it.

The DataTable Fill() method populates the DataTable from the database using a SELECT statement. An INSERT statement would suggest a push to the database, whereas the Fill() method is used to pull from the database.
