Datareader(simp le)

SqlCommand findProducts = new SqlCommand("SEL ECT PRODUCT_TYPE_ID FROM
PRODUCT_TYPE WHERE [NAME] = 'Meals'", sqlConnection1) ;

This command returns a value of 17. How can i insert this value into
a string variable? Please help . I tried this but it wouldnt work

SqlDataReader myReader = findProducts.Ex ecuteReader();
while (myReader.Read( ))
ProdTypeID =
int.Parse(myRea der["PRODUCT_TYPE_I D"].ToString());

If it only returns a single cell, then ExecuteScalar() might be an
easier option; since you state that you want a string, the easiest
option would then be:

string foo = Convert.ToStrin g(findProducts. ExecuteScalar() );

How to best use data-reader depends on whether PRODUCT_TYPE_ID is an int
or a [n][var]char;
if int:
string foo = reader.GetInt32 (0).ToString();
if [n][var]char:
string foo = reader.GetStrin g(0);

You could also use:
string foo = Convert.ToStrin g(reader[0]);
string foo = Convert.ToStrin g(reader["PRODUCT_TYPE_I D"]);
