Issues fetching data RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am developing for a multilanguage software with support for arabic, chinese, english, spanish, etc, recently we at the office are adding support for vietnamese. And I found a bug. When I set my windows locale to Vietnam and its format to Vientamese. I am not able to fetch a column, when I checked the query I had "Select Fieldname1, FieldName2 from Table" as query and the data set was trying to fecth the data from the dataSet using

    void TakeOverWorld(){
    // --- start variables, and execute query.
          foreach (DataRow row in data.Tables[0].Rows)
                        FieldName1 = Convert.ToInt32(row["FieldName1"]);
                        FieldName2 = Convert.ToInt32(row["FieldName2"]);
                    //---rest of code

    An exception was thrown saying  that "FieldName" could not be found.

    Column 'FieldName1' does not belong to table Table1.
    at System.Data.DataRow.GetDataColumn(String columnName)
       at System.Data.DataRow.get_Item(String columnName)

    Could you please confirm that this is a bug in the library? It happens that Vietnamese by default is case sensitive while the rest of languages (at least the ones I worked with before) are not.

    Edit: I fixed it by capitalizing correctly with the naming convention we are using, but I think that the intent is to have it non-case-sensitive by default. And before you ask, no, I do not have repeated column names in the query.

  • Hi GenaroArteagaSalinas,

    Based on your description, I create a simple and change location to Vietnam, which works well. please try the following code, which get ColumnName from data.Tables[0].Columns and check if it works for you.

    foreach (DataRow row in data.Tables[0].Rows) {
        foreach (DataColumn col in data.Tables[0].Columns) {
            object value = row[col.ColumnName];

    Best regards,
