it should follow the same concept.

you make Connection to the DB
and send it String commands

Dim SqlDataReader Sdr1 = new SqlCommand("Select A, B, C, D FROM XYZ",MyConnetion).ExecuteReader()
   Console.WriteLine(Sdr1.GetInt32(0)) 'Assuming A is of type int in the table
   Console.WriteLine(Sdr1.GetString(1)) 'Assuming B is of type String in the table
   Console.WriteLine(Sdr1.GetBoolean(2)) 'Assuming C is of type Bool in the table

I assume You understand why I use 0,1,2. If not then that is how you called them in the Select statement.

For Update just do

new SqlCommand("UPDATE XYZ SET A = 7",MyConnection).ExecuteNonQuery()

For Insert

new SqlCommand("INSERT INTO XYZ (A,B,C) VALUES (7,'Hello World','True')",MyConnection).ExecuteNonQuery()

I assume you get the gist of it.

Please mark as solved if solved
