Ccopying a datatable content from an untyped dataset into a table which is inside a typed dataset

Hi All,
I am facing problem in copying content of table from a untyped dataset into
to a table inside the typed dataset. I wanted to copy the data into typed
dataset in order to ease the further processing using typed references.

DataSet ds = getDataFromDB() ; - i am getting the dataset ds from a
webservice

I have got MyXSD which decsribes the shcema for the table which i am getting
from the webservice
and i am trying to cast like following
MyXSD myds = (MyXSD)ds; ==> but giving me invalid exception error

And i tried copying the table from ds into myds like
myds.Tables[0] = ds.Tables[0];

but it is giving me error saying myds.Tables[0] is READ ONLY....

I tried ImportRow also but getting errors and i don't want to manually go
thru the rows and put into my Typed dataset..

Thanks for your help.

Hi,

I believe (read that as I have not tried it!) that you can accomplish this
with the Merge member of the DataSet.

DataSet ds = getDataFromDB() ;
MyDataSet myds = new MyDataSet();

myds.Merge( ds );

For the cast to work your getDataFromDB() would have to actually be creating
a strongly typed dataset and merely return it as a generic DataSet.

Hope this helps

Hello all. I have noticed that when I generate a strongly-typed dataset from an xml schema that the DataTables that are generated have their constructors marked as internal. What this means is when I try to instantiate one of the strongly-typed tables from this dataset from a different assembly, I cannot. Let me provide examples... If I have a simple dataset like this:

Hello, I am trying to create a strongly typed datatable/dataset from an untyped dataset or datatable returned from a stored proc. The structure of the table cannot be static since the results are dynamic which means that I am right now creating the schema/structure of the datatable from a datareader using reader.GetSchemaTable() and then looping thru the reader to populate values. Is there any other efficient way of achieving this?...

Hi, I have a method, which opens a connection, creates an untyped datable, fills it and returns it back. I have defined a typed datatable in my application as well. For some reasons, I have to call the above mentioned method to get data. Unfortunately, as it returns an untyped datatable, I can't assign my typed datatable variable this value (a base type can't be converted into a sub type automatically). Without resorting to looping thru...

Hello As a known issue, WCF does not allow to transfer typed DataSet. So I have to copy all data from typed DataSet to untyped DataSet(same table names, column names and row data). What is the most efficient way to do that? I tried to remove DataTable from typed one then add to untyped one, but I tell me it is forbidden to remove tables from typed DataSet. Thanks zlf
