Hi Vikash;

I am assuming that the class UserDoc in your code matches the fields that you want to retrieve from the table in the database and that UserDoc is not part of the data model that was created by the ORM. A query returns a collection of object and therefore to retrieve one record you need to use something like the FirstOrDefault as shown in the query below.
UserDoc = (from uDoc in db.userDoc 
           where uDoc.personid == "X123456" 
           select new Document
           {
               Doc_ID = uDoc.Doc_ID,
               personid = uDoc.personid,
               DocType = uDoc.DocType,
               uploaded_Document = uDoc.uploaded_Document,
               Document_Name = uDoc.Document_Name
           }).FirstOrDefault();

Hi,

try this

Document UserDoc = new Document();

UserDoc =  db.userDoc.where(c=> c.personid == "X123456").FirstOrDefault();

if(UserDoc != null)
{
     int Id = UserDoc.Doc_ID; 

}
