polachan, you have a lot of experience in these forums and this particular programming problem has been explained to you many times. Partial view run on the server and return HTML. jQuery DataTable runs in the browser and expects JSON to render dynamic
You are having difficulty because you are not following the jQuery DataTable documentation. You'll need to set aside time to learn jQuery DataTable then come up with a design.
JQuery DataTable and AJAX. This approach requires returning JSON rather than a Partial View (HTML)
Or use the standard filter feature in jQuery DataTable. This option can be slow if you have a lot of data and does not require a partial view but you can use one of you like.
