How to Use DataViews to Filter and Sort ADO.Net DataTables
This week, we learn how to filter and sort the data in our ADO.Net DataTables by using DataViews. Whether you have a small or large amount of data, this data engineering technique will be very valuable to you. While in most cases, an analyst can request a filtered or sorted list directly from a database, there are also many cases when this is not possible, and the engineer is left with a large amount of data in DataTables in memory. Often they need to filter and sort their tables on-the-fly, without access (or too limited access) to a database to do the work for them. Enter the DataView, a powerful tool made just for this purpose.
