Column does not belong to table

6 New Member

Guyz I am having problem when i read the data from a datareader into a data table.

The whole scenario is this that I want to read data from two diffrent databases, the table strcutre is same. You can say that other one is the copy of 1st one. I want to read out the data from one table in one database and merge the results with the one read form the other database.

What i am doing is reading data from two databases into data readers. now i just have to merge them. what i did took one datatable and want to merge the data in two datareader object into that data table. frst one went ok. but when i was inserting the rows from the 2nd one it gave this error.
see the code bellow and suggest plz:

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. public static DataTable PopupateDataTableFromDataReader(DataTable dt, clsDataReader dr)
  2.         {
  4.             DataTable dtSchema = dr.dr.GetSchemaTable();
  6.             // You can also use an ArrayList instead of List<>
  7.             ArrayList listCols = new ArrayList();
  9.             if (dtSchema != null)
  10.             {
  11.                 foreach (DataRow drow in dtSchema.Rows)
  12.                 {
  13.                     string columnName = System.Convert.ToString(drow["ColumnName"]);
  14.                     DataColumn column = new DataColumn(columnName, (Type)(drow["DataType"]));
  15.                     column.Unique = (bool)drow["IsUnique"];
  16.                     column.AllowDBNull = (bool)drow["AllowDBNull"];
  17.                     column.AutoIncrement = (bool)drow["IsAutoIncrement"];
  18.                     listCols.Add(column);
  19.                     if(dt.Columns.IndexOf(column.ColumnName) == -1)
  20.                     {
  21.                         dt.Columns.Add(column);
  22.                     }
  23.                 }
  24.             }
  26.             // Read rows from DataReader and populate the DataTable
  27.             while (dr.dr.Read())
  28.             {
  29.                 DataRow dataRow = dt.NewRow();
  30.                 for (int i = 0; i < listCols.Count; i++)
  31.                 {
  32.                     dataRow[((DataColumn)listCols[i])] = dr.dr[i];
  33.                 }
  34.                 dt.Rows.Add(dataRow);
  35.             }
  36.             return dt;
  37.         }    
  39.         public static clsDataReader  executeReturn2(string sqlCommand)
  40.         {
  41.             try
  42.             {
  44.                 SqlConnection   co =initConnection(2);
  45.                 clsDataReader dataReader=new clsDataReader();
  46.                 SqlCommand   myCommand = new SqlCommand(sqlCommand, co);
  47.                 SqlDataReader dr= myCommand.ExecuteReader();
  48.                 dataReader.co =co ;
  49.                 dataReader.dr =dr;
  51.                 return dataReader;
  52.             }
  53.             catch(Exception e)
  54.             {
  55.                 throw new Exception("An error occured while trying to run the following: " + sqlCommand,e); 
  56.             }
  57.         }

If you wish to merge two similar tables then DataSet.Merge() is far easier to use. You have to make sure that the primary key column exists though.

Merging Datasets

To give a brief idea consider a table Emp1: with columns empid, empname and second table Emp2: with columns empid, empjoindate.
You could have data of Emp1 in dataset1 and Emp2 in dataset2.
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. select empid,empname from Emp1;
  2. select empid,empjiondate from Emp2;
You could easily merge the dataset by calling
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. dataset1.Merge(dataset2.Tables[0]);
