  • Hello g90,

    >>but i don't know how to go to the first row then the second row etc...

    For this, my understand is that you want return the result one by one in order according to one column, if I am correct, you could have a try with below query syntax:

    var result = (from t in db.Orders
                                      orderby t.TestName
                                      select t).Skip(1).Take(1).ToList();

    This query would return one record from a collection which is ordered by the TestName column and the returned index is the second position. For the first record one, just remove the Skip() method.
