    ExecuteScalar() in SqlCommand Object is used for get a single value from Database after its execution. It executes SQL statements or Stored Procedure and returned a scalar value on first column of first row in the Result Set. If the Result Set contains more than one columns or rows , it takes only the first column of first row, all other values will ignore. If the Result Set is empty it will return a Null reference.It is very useful to use with aggregate functions like Count(*) or Sum() etc. When compare to ExecuteReader() , ExecuteScalar() uses fewer System resources.
