DataRow(s) from DataTable can be selected without LINQ just by using DataTable.Select() method.
string searchExpression = null; searchExpression = "CategoryId=" + 2; DataRow SelectedDataRows = EmailAttachment.Select(searchExpression);
SelectedDataRows will have all rows where CategoryID is 2. An overload of Select also allows to select and sort results, for more details on it
