Ok. Brand new at this so please give a little patience and help me on the
baby steps. I'm rewriting something I did initially in PHP / MySql on a
vb.net / mysql platform. Here's what I'm doing:
1) Data is pulled from the internet and stored to a CSV file
2) Data is loaded into the database with some changes
3) All sorts of data crunching goes on.
Step one works fine -- data is saved to a csv file.
Step 2 -- The data is loaded from a CSV file into a table in a dataset. This
part works fine too. I have added a column to the table once it is full.
That works fine too. Now I want to set fill that "Symbol" column with
something of my choosing. This will change regularly. How do I do this? I
have poked around the web for quite some time. I tried using:
Dim TestCmd As New OleDb.OleDbCommand("UPDATE CSV Set Symbol = 'YHOO';")
' testing below
DA.SelectCommand = TestCmd
And that doesn't work at all. Of course I"m very new to ADO.Net and could
use some pointers here. The only tutorials I can find online are how to
create a table from scratch. I want to simply add a column and, if
possible, set the text in all the fields in this column. Eventually, I will
need to know how to take the info from this datatable and dump it into my
database, but that's for later.
Please help! Thanks.
