RowNotInTableException Class

Represents the exception that is thrown when you try to perform an operation on a DataRow that is not in a DataTable.

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

public class RowNotInTableException : DataException
/** @attribute SerializableAttribute() */ 
public class RowNotInTableException extends DataException
public class RowNotInTableException extends DataException
Not applicable.

The RowNotInTableException is thrown when invoking the following methods on a row that has been deleted with either the Delete or the DataRowCollection.Remove method.

The following example creates a DataTable with one DataColumn and 10 DataRow objects. After deleting a row, the AcceptChanges method is called causing the RowNotInTableException to be thrown.

private void DemonstrateRowNotInTableException()
    // Create a DataTable with one column and ten rows.      
    DataTable table = new DataTable("NewTable");
    DataColumn column = new DataColumn("NewColumn");

    DataRow newRow;
    for(int i = 0;i <10;i++)
        newRow = table.NewRow();
        newRow["NewColumn"] = i;
        // Remove a row and invoke AcceptChanges.
        DataRow removedRow = table.Rows[9];
    catch(System.Data.RowNotInTableException rowException)
        Console.WriteLine("Row not in table");
