locationinfo.Name = "Pune";    // Populate entity with Names,and other field

locationinfo.Availability = 1.5M;

locationinfo.CostRate = 1.6M;

locationinfo.ModifiedDate = DateTime.Now;

dbc.Locations.InsertOnSubmit(locationinfo);    // Pass this location entity to Database context for insertation

dbc.SubmitChanges();     // update changes into SQL

var query = from locationEntity in dbc.Locations     // Query the locations table for newly inserted field locations

where locationEntity.Name == "Pune"

select locationEntity;
