I have a c# console solution. The solution runs and generates a report in the form of a datatable.
I use a around 10 different classes and 1 dll within the solution.

I would like to convert the solution to a funtion that can be called by ASP.NET MVC with a parameter and return the content of the datatable. Is this possible? If so, how can I do it?

Well, it's .NET, so you could potentially just add a reference to the console application from your MVC application, and then use it the same way you would a DLL. If you really want to, you could convert it to a library.

Two alternatives:
A1. Call your console app from MVC using Process.Start. check the sample method LaunchCommandLineApp for further details.
Notice that your web site (thus your console app) runs under a restricted user account, make sure you have the appropriate security permissions.
A2. Refactor the classes/dll of the console app into a library, then in that library implement a public static method that can be called by both your console app and your MVC project. In other words you are sharing the common logic between the 2 apps. the advantage is you do not have to worry about security permissions.
