Can some explain what a DataSet and a MSDE are?


  • A DataSet is a result of a SQL statement, often a SQL query. In .NET there is a data object called a 'DataSet' which is used to hold the results of a SQL statement run against a data source.

    MSDE is the microsoft desktop data engine, which a database management software. Often MSDE is used as a datasource in .NET to run SQL statements against.

  • A DataSet can be a Memory representation of a Database, It can contain many Tables, relation, Key, etc ... but all of this, in memory...

    But usually, I use it like a "recordset" in VB6, to contain SQL Query result.
