Dynamically create sql tables with C#

Expert 100+
P: 210
I am working on a massive query that pulls a lots of data from the database and is being displayed in a gridview. I am trying to breakdown the query into multiple steps. To accomplish this i need to create temporary tables and use a join to get the data's more efficiently. My question is how do i create temp tables using a c# code.

Thank you in advance.

Temporary tables in SQL or just tables in C#?
DataTable dt = new DataTable(); will get you an empty datatable in C#

if i create table DataTable dt = new DataTable(); will i be able to perform sql join on the table with primary table and further retrieve the desired data only.

I am not sure but i think i need to create temporary table in SQL to perform the joins.

Well if your joins are written in SQL, then you would need to create the temp table in the sql server.

You may create the table then drop it.
