ADO.NET support in Mono is not ready for primetime.  I can not say when it
will be ready.
Some parts are more stable than others.  However, System.Data needs some
heavy testing for it to become mature.

You can help contribute to the project.  This can be done via source code,
documentation, or testing.  Any three of these will help make System.Data in
Mono become closer to be ready for primetime.  Most especially, testing
needs to be done to find bugs.  Good Bug reports will help get the bugs
fixed quicker.  Bug reports can be entered in Bugzilla at

If you don't have an account, you can create a new one.

Unfortunately, the OleDb provider in Mono only works on Linux due to its
dependence on libgda.  In order for it to work on Windows, it would need to
be ported.

Libgda can be found at http://www.gnome-db.org/

What kind of DBMS are you using? Microsoft SQL Server, Sybase, Oracle, IBM
DB2 Universal Database, MySQL, PostgreSQL, SQL Lite, Firebird/Interbase SQL,
or something else?
These databases have Mono data providers for them.

If there is not a provider for your DBMS or its not working well enough for
you, you could try the ODBC data provider which works on Windows, Linux, and

What operating system are you using?

When you say DataGrid, which GUI are you talking about?  ASP.NET, GTK#,
System.Windows.Forms, or something else?

I would  want to know when the mono project will end.
I had use the mono project but many problem stop me, such as OleDb
connection, datagrid paging.
If the mono project will end in less five or six moth, it will be a
fantastic news for me.

Thanks for your help.
