DataView::ToTable Method (String)

Creates and returns a new DataTable based on rows in an existing DataView.

Namespace:  System.Data
Assembly:  System.Data (in System.Data.dll)

DataTable^ ToTable(
	String^ tableName


Type: System::String

The name of the returned DataTable.

Return Value

Type: System.Data::DataTable
A new DataTable instance that contains the requested rows and columns.

Because this method does not let you specify a subset of available columns, the output table contains the same columns as the input table.

The following console application example creates a DataTable, fills the DataTable with data, creates a filtered view based on the original data, and finally creates a DataTable with a new name that contains the filtered rows.

No code example is currently available or this language may not be supported.

The example displays the following text in the console window:

Original table name: NewTable
Current Values in Table
1, Fruit, Apple, 14
2, Fruit, Orange, 27
3, Bread, Muffin, 23
4, Fish, Salmon, 12

Current Values in View
2, Fruit, Orange, 27
3, Bread, Muffin, 23

Table created from filtered DataView
2, Fruit, Orange, 27
3, Bread, Muffin, 23

New table name: FilteredTable
