  • Hello,

    >>Now i want to insert those Numbers to the database

    For inserting a list of items to database, a loop statement is needed. I do not how you get these numbers, I assume they are stored in a collection and you could check below demo sample to insert these numbers and I assume your person table is identified:

    using (DFDBEntities db = new DFDBEntities())
                        List<int> numbers = new List<int>() { 6131, 5241, 3978, 6824, 3842 };
                        for (int i = 0; i < numbers.Count; i++)
                            int number = numbers[i];
                            //Check if the local and database already contains this number
                            bool isRecordExist = db.Tables.Any(t => t.Number == number) || db.Tables.Local.Any(t => t.Number == number);
                            if (!isRecordExist)
                                Table t = new Table();
                                t.Number = number;
