  • Hello,

    Simple example, we have a table named Customers, we want all customer AccountNumber were the field Country is equal to say Canada. So when calling this function we pass in Canada. It's always best to use parameters as shown below rather than string concatenation.

    You need to setup the connection string, look to the following page for how to create the connection string.

    public DataTable Demo1(string Country)
        var dt = new DataTable();
        using (SqlConnection cn = new SqlConnection { ConnectionString = "Your connection string goes here" })
            using (SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand { Connection = cn })
                cmd.CommandText = "SELECT AccountNumber FROM Customers WHERE Country=@Country";
                cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@Country", Country);
        return dt;
    So that is the basic setup for returning data using a where condition. You can add more fields to the SELECT and more conditions to the WHERE as needed.
