This example assumes that a DataColumnMappingCollection collection has been created.

public void FindDataColumnMapping() 
{
    // ... 
    // create columnMappings 
    // ... 
    if (!columnMappings.Contains("Description"))
        Console.WriteLine("Error: no such table in collection.");
    else
    {
        Console.WriteLine("Name {0}", 
            columnMappings["Description"].ToString());
        Console.WriteLine("Index: {0}", 
            columnMappings.IndexOf("Description").ToString());
    }
}
