The SqlCeDataAdapter serves as a bridge between a DataSet and data source for retrieving and saving data. The SqlCeDataAdapter provides this bridge by using Fill to load data from the data source into the DataSet, and using Update to send changes made in the DataSet back to the data source.

When the SqlCeDataAdapter fills a DataSet, it will create the necessary tables and columns for the returned data if they do not already exist. However, primary key information will not be included in the implicitly created schema unless the MissingSchemaAction property is set to AddWithKey. You may also have the SqlCeDataAdapter create the schema of the DataSet, including primary key information, before filling it with data using FillSchema.

The SqlCeDataAdapter also includes the SelectCommand, InsertCommand, DeleteCommand, UpdateCommand, and TableMappings properties to facilitate the loading and updating of data.

When you create an instance of SqlCeDataAdapter, properties are set to their initial values. For a list of these values, see the SqlCeDataAdapter constructor.
