            //Establish SQL Connection
            SqlConnection con = new SqlConnection(strConnection);
            //Open database connection to connect to SQL Server

            DataSet dsempdetails = new DataSet ();
            // Create a new data adapter based on the specified query.
            SqlDataAdapter da = new SqlDataAdapter("Select * from UserMaster", con);
            //SQl command builder is used to get data from database based on query
