  • No, you can't do that. The CTE is something that only exists in the SQL Server. The C# DataTable (System.Data.DataTable) does not contain such functionality.

    You can fill a DataTable with the result of executing a query on the SQL Server. The query MAY contain a CTE, but this will be completely transparent for the C# code and its DataTable, which are unaware of the internal structure of the SQL query. The CTE will only run against the SQL Server, not against the DataTable.
