How to: View the Queries in a TableAdapter

A TableAdapter can contain several queries:

  • The main Fill query, which is used to define the schema of the TableAdapter's data table.

  • Additional queries that can be used to fill the table as well (the additional queries do not define the schema of the table, but they do need to return data that conforms to that schema, or return a scalar value).

  • Additionally, depending on the structure of the main Fill query, a TableAdapter can contain INSERT, UPDATE, and DELETE queries (typically referred to as commands) that are used to send updated data back to the database.
