As dumb as this question seems, I can't seem to find the answer in any of my books or online help.  I know I can use a DataReader to step through a result set, but what if I was given a dataset?  What is the code needed to step through it row by row?

DataSet has Tables property. Table has Rows property and Row has Columns property. You just need to make use of thiese properties to get the values.

Here is sample from documentation.

private void PrintRows(DataSet myDataSet){
   // For each table in the DataSet, print the row values.
   foreach(DataTable myTable in myDataSet.Tables){
      foreach(DataRow myRow in myTable.Rows){
         foreach (DataColumn myColumn in myTable.Columns){
            Console.WriteLine(myRow[myColumn]);
         }
      }
   }
}

Private Sub PrintRows(ByVal myDataSet As DataSet)
   Dim myTable As DataTable
   Dim myRow As DataRow
   Dim myColumn As DataColumn
   ' For each table in the DataSet, print the row values.
   For Each myTable in myDataSet.Tables
      For Each myRow In myTable.Rows
         For Each myColumn in myTable.Columns
            Console.WriteLine(myRow(myColumn))
         Next myColumn
      Next myRow
   Next myTable
End Sub
