Property Value

The name of the DataTable.



null or empty string ("") is passed in and this table belongs to a collection.

The table belongs to a collection that already has a table with the same name. (Comparison is case-sensitive).


The following example prints the TableName for each table in a collection of DataTable objects.

private void GetTableNames(DataSet dataSet)
    // Print each table's TableName.
    foreach(DataTable table in dataSet.Tables)
Private Sub GetTableNames(dataSet As DataSet)
     ' Print each table's TableName.
     Dim table As DataTable
     For Each table In dataSet.Tables
     Next table
End Sub


The TableName is used to return this table from the parent DataSet object's DataTableCollection (returned by the Tables property).
