DataAdapter will act as a mediator between dataset and database server. This will perform 2 things:

– It will read data from database and place within dataset in the form of datatables.

– The manipulation on the dataset table will be updated with database.

string conn = “You connection string will goes here”;

string strSQL = “SELECT * FROM EMPLOYEES”;

SqlConnection conn = new SqlConnection(conn);

SqlDataAdapter da = new SqlDataAdapter(strSQL, conn);

DataSet ds = new DataSet();

da.Fill(ds, “Employees”);

Here Employees is the datatable name.

Check out the below diagram how it is working:
