Return DataRow or Row index from DataView

I need to return a DataRow or the Row Index in a DataSet wherein the
value I am attempting to find is not a primary key.

I have to do this often, more than 200 times when importing a file so
it needs to be fast.

Could I use a Dataview to filter for the value (which is unique) and
return either the DataRow object so I can modify it and put it back
into the DataSet the view is based on or somehow get the RowIndex in
the DataSet that the row corresponds to?

Out of curiosity.

Does the DataTable.Selec t method change in speed if you create a DataView

I may have to try some timings of my own later this weekend...

Hope this helps

Wow, Thanks Peter, Cor, and Jay

I have some interesting results from your posts that I would like to
share. First of all, the methods, Table Select and DataView Find
methods both work. What I was not prepared for was the difference in

When I tested my application using the Table Select method it was taking
approximately 68 seconds to import 200 rows of data from a text file. I
then tested the DataView find method and low and behold, 33 seconds!

I know these times may seem extreme even though for me 33 seconds is an
awesome result. The data is extremely complicated and may contain up to
a hundred values on one row and each value may be inserted into any of
15 tables. We do not know from one value to the next which of those 15
tables will get the value. Thats what you get with Biological data. ;)

The value I am trying to find is in a primary table and it must exist
before the line is allowed to be imported. The value should be unique
but with an Access database anything could happen.

In any case, I want to thank all three of you for helping me out. I now
have a greater understanding of how to find my data and some great
methods for doing the job.

Much appreciated,

Timothy Frawley

Hi Jay B.

I intuitive take always the dataview.

We see it if you give samples about adonet with me it is usually
dataview(when I cannot use the find), while it is with you mostly
table.select and table.compute, which belong not to the set I like to use.
(To give you an idea about that, when I wrote RPG it was more assembler than
RPG, RPG I did use only for the logic and the IO).

When I looked at that, the words of Peter looked more than clear for me that
the dataview should use the same functionality as the select, because the
rowfilter is just the same, so why do it on another way. (They both should
iterate through a datarowcolletio n to find the equals and with answering
that I forgot all the things I know about tagsorts and things like that)

If the dataview builds tag indexes because of speed, than that can speed up
but also slow down the first time. Can you examine that also when you test
in this weekend?

Again is proven that the "best" method not exists.

:-) a little bit :-( but because I learned again something :-)))
