Navigating datarelations

P: n/a
Hi all,

I have a dataset made up of 3 tables that is bound to a datalist.

On the itemdataBound event I call a sub that grabs a value (an id value)
from the current row being outputted, queries the database using this id
value to return a string value that I replace the id with in the datalist.

My question is this: instead of re-querying the database can I use the
dataset to replace this value using the id?

And what would the syntax be for accessing such a relation something like:
mylabel = mydataset.Relation("myrelationname").Columns(6)... .? Or is
there a method I can use to access this based on the id? getParentRows
maybe? Where can I can such syntax examples? I am assuming this has to be
called in the same Sub.

I know there must be a way to access this data via the relations collection,
I am just unsure of the syntax of how to do so.

Cheers, and thx for any help! Lerp :)
