I can loop while the datatable is full, but get an error when it is empty. How do I know it's empty.

Re: check if datatable is empty 80 80

What is the error you are getting?

You could do a test for the number of records and only loop if it is greater than 0.

And how are you looping through the table?

Pseudo-Code:

Dim dr As OleDbDataReader = cmd.ExecuteReader()

Do While dr.Read
...
...
Loop

Hope this helps

Re: check if datatable is empty 80 80

Dim myConnStr As String = "Provider=Microsoft.jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=" + myPath
Dim myConn As New OleDb.OleDbConnection(myConnStr)
Dim myAdapt As New OleDb.OleDbDataAdapter(myQuery, myConn)

Try
myConn.Open()
Dim myReader As New DataSet
myAdapt.Fill(myReader)

**
** I need to check if myReader is empty
**

tbGATE.Text = myReader.Rows(0)("dGate")
tbCONC.Text = myReader.Rows(0)("dConc")
tbPAY.Text = myReader.Rows(0)("dPayment")

**
** I need to check if myReader.Rows(0)("dWeather") is empty

cbWEATHER.DisplayMember = myReader.Rows(0)("dWeather")

myConn.Close()

Catch ex As Exception
MessageBox.Show(ex.Message)

Re: check if datatable is empty 80 80

(For sake of confusion, I would not name my Dataset as myReader - seems to refer to a datareader to someone not knowing what you are coding for.... just some programming edicate I thought I should pass on)

Saying that......

Add the line

If myReader.Tables("dWeather").Rows.Count > 0 Then

Hope this helps

Also might do well to ensure the object itself is not Nothing.
If a SQL call fails, the dataset/table object can remain uninitialized, in which case myReader.Rows will throw an error.

Re: check if datatable is empty 80 80

ds.tables(0).rows.count

Really Janet.... A Thread From 2005?

Re: check if datatable is empty 80 80

Better late than never :D

Re: check if datatable is empty 80 80

Try this

If Not dataset1 Is Nothing Then
.....
... Process dataset
.....
End If

Re: check if datatable is empty 80 80

You probably can guess this from the previous threads but I use:

dim MyTable as Datatable
'fill datatable....
If (MyTable Is Nothing) Or (MyTable.Rows.Count =0 ) Then
'it's empty
Else
'it exists and there are rows 
End if
