Having trouble figuring out how to get this binded to a datatable and run a foreach query on it.

My goal is to have an initial query ran that returns a list of id numbers from sql. Then it puts it to a datatable where i can run a foreach row value in the datatable and run a sql query and add them to a dataset that is then binded to a gridview in asp.net

Here is what I have so far.

        SqlConnection sqlconnection1 = new SqlConnection(ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["outlook"].ConnectionString);
        SqlCommand cmd5 = sqlconnection1.CreateCommand();
        cmd5.CommandText = "SELECT xrefid from outlookreport.dbo.assignloans where userid=@userid" ;

        cmd5.Parameters.AddWithValue("@userid", "test@gmail.com");
        SqlDataAdapter da = new SqlDataAdapter(cmd5);
        DataTable table;

From my experience  a table JOIN will do the job.

This is actually very simple. At first, I had a difficult time understanding that you don't need to implement the "foreach" yourself with a GridView. It does it for you. Here is a simple page I put together that demonstrates what you need to do. Note that you need to set the
