If you want to insert more than one row, then you will have to create a ‘List’ array object containing all the ‘User’ objects and then use ‘Insert All On Submit‘ method, it will work fine.
Here is a small block of c# code samples to create new ‘User’ linq to sql class(Representing ‘Users’ Table in Database) and add it to ‘Users Data Context’ class(Represents the database) and commit the changes to original database by ‘Submit Changes'(without this, no changes will be reflected to database): For your information, the above code example is for .
