You can get the total number of rows count in ds like this;

int rowsCnt = ds.Tables[0].Rows.Count;

You can also specify name of table like;

int rowsCnt = ds.Tables["Employee"].Rows.Count;

if u want to get row count in dataset use

int intCount;
intCount = ds.Tables["myTable"].Rows.Count;

but not clear about yr 2nd query what u wnat compare table rows of one sell?

you can count Rows By SQL Query too and Using the Count Property of Datable that is inside the Data Set

by SQL Query

select count(*) from table;

this will return you the row count in table


Using Data Table 's Count Property

int count = DataSet1.Tables[0].Rows.Count ;

you can compare any value inside the datatable by referencing them with the position inside the dataset as

            Items (Column values)

you can compare like as...

You can use self join for compare 2 rows of the same table

SELECT t1.value, t2.value
 FROM MyTable t1, MyTable t2
 WHERE = @id
   AND t1.status = @status1
   AND =
   AND t2.status = @status2

you can use count function to count total number of records


SELECT count( * ) as total_record FROM student

Suppose u have dataset names "mydataset"  and table name of dataset as "table1" (even u can access table with index)

for comparing cells use below code

 foreach (DataRow item in ds.Tables["table1"].Rows)
      string temp = item["name"].ToString();  // "name" is column name

to get count of dataset use below code

        SqlConnection cn = new SqlConnection("your connection string");

        SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand("select count(*) from employee", cn);


        int i = cmd.ExecuteScalar();

        Label1.Text = "there are " + i.ToString() + " records in employee table ";
