RecordSet is a type in standard ADO.

ADODataSet is a type in Delphi.

Neither is related to C#.

This might just be a spelling problem. ADO.NET does have a DataSet type,
although it's called DataSet, not ADODataSet. The ADO.NET DataSet is,
roughly speaking, the managed equivalent of the unmanaged ADO RecordSet.

Google will be of help to you.

Tim,

I would say that the DataTable is the managed equivalent. It's a better
fit, since the Recordset and the DataTable are both representations of a
tabular set of data. The DataSet is a collection of DataTables, something
that ADO doesn't have.

The DataTable, on the other hand, doesn't have anything that relates to
a "current" record. This confuses a lot of people, as they expect it to be
baked into the data (when in reality, it is a concept separate from the set
of data).
