You can use these to form Language-Integrated Query (LINQ) expressions and method queries against DataTable objects. They are the recommended methods to use for accessing column values within Language-Integrated Query (LINQ) expressions and method queries. For more information, see Generic Field and SetField Methods (LINQ to DataSet).
