     Wouldn't it be nice if you could use good-ole SQL language to execute a Select statement against a set of locally-cached DataTables that you've already retrieved from an underlying database?

This class does exactly that... it supports a minimal set of SQL SELECT command statements against a group of ADO.Net DataTables contained in a detached DataSet. The purpose is to prevent a round trip to the server to accomplish simple things like what is available with the JOIN and GROUP BY clauses of the SELECT command.

The syntax for the SELECT command is designed around the SQL Server 2000 dialect of the SQL language.

What's supported is SQL statements like the following:

SELECT Categories.CategoryID, CategoryName, AVG(UnitsInStock) AS AvgUnits
FROM Products JOIN Categories ON Categories.CategoryID = Products.CategoryID
WHERE (UnitsInStock > 0) AND (Discontinued = 0)
GROUP BY Categories.CategoryID, CategoryName
HAVING (AVG(UnitsInStock) > 30)

Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
