    Hi, I want to know can I use WCF Data Service to access Windows Azure Table Storage. If yes how can I do that.

      Hi Saqib,

      Of course you can. Table Storage are exposed as OData endpoints.

      Try to direct an OData tool on your table URI (e.g. http://www.silverlight.net/content/samples/odataexplorer/).

      The issue you’ll probably have is that you’ll need to give some credentials to your OData proxy in order to authenticate with Azure Storage.

      But all of that is wrapped inside the Azure Storage SDK where you can do LINQ queries on tables without realizing you’re talking to an OData endpoint. Do you have specific requirements not to use that?
