How to find column definition - OLEDB Data Source

Dataset represents a collection of data retrieved from the Data Source.. The OleDbDataAdapter object allows us to populate DataTable in a DataSet. We can use Fill method in the OleDbDataAdapter for populating data in a Dataset. The Dataset can contain more than one Table at a time. The data set may comprise data for one or more members, corresponding to the number of rows.

In some situations we have to find the column headers in a DataTable. There is a ColumnsCollection object in the Datatable hold the column Definitions.

Imports System.Data.OleDb
Public Class Form1
    Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
        Dim connetionString As String
        Dim connection As OleDbConnection
        Dim oledbAdapter As OleDbDataAdapter
        Dim ds As New DataSet
        Dim dt As DataTable
        Dim sql As String
        Dim i As Integer

        connetionString = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=Your mdb filename;"
        sql = "Your SQL Statement Here"

        connection = New OleDbConnection(connetionString)
            oledbAdapter = New OleDbDataAdapter(sql, connection)
            oledbAdapter.Fill(ds, "OLEDB Temp Table")

            dt = ds.Tables(0)
            For i = 0 To dt.Columns.Count - 1
        Catch ex As Exception
            MsgBox("Can not open connection ! ")
        End Try
    End Sub
End Class

connetionString = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=Your mdb filename;"
sql = "Your SQL Statement Here"
