    using (SqlConnection con = new SqlConnection(constr))
    using (SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand("select Link from LatestNewsMaster where active <> 'd'"))
    cmd.Connection = con;
    using (SqlDataAdapter sda = new SqlDataAdapter(cmd))
    DataTable dt = new DataTable();
    label1.Text = dt.Rows[0][0].ToString().Trim();

    Hai Rao,
    The below code is not correct:

    label1.Text = dt.Rows[0][0].ToString().Trim();

    You need to modify it like:

    for(int i=0; i< dt.Rows.Count; i++)
    lable1.Text += dt.Rows[i][0].ToString().Trim() + "\n";

    Hope it will be helpful to you.

    Yes, it should return only first record as per your code because you are calling 0th index record only as per your code, see the below piece of code.

    label1.Text = dt.Rows[0][0].ToString().Trim();

    In above code dt.Rows you are calling 0th index only, if you want to retrieve all the records available in table then you need to iterate the loop and then concatenate and assign back to your control.

    Refer below sample code to achieve that

    for(int i=0;i<dt.Rows.Count;i++)
    label1.Text = label1.Text +dt.Rows[i]["ColumnName"].ToString() + " , ";

    In above code instead of ColumnName you can provide the index of the column also, and instead of ", " separator you can use whatever you want.

    Hope this will helpful to you...

    If you want to display more than one record you have to use, GridView, DataList, or Repeator control.

    You can just assign the data source and bind it. This is the correct way.

    In case if you want to bind in the Lable you an use the for loop and assign the test

    for(int i=0; i< dt.Rows.Count; i++)
    lable1.Text += dt.Rows[i][0].ToString().Trim() + "\n";

    Use gridview for that case. Look here
    If you are unable to do something properly for the first time, call it Version 1.0!
