from dataset to xml

I'm new vb.net and XML.

In my app I'm selecting data from a SQL database into a dataset - no problem.
I can use dataset.writexml method to write out the data as XML but this inserts element tags as per database field names.

I need to write that data out as XML but to a given XML definition.
I've set up a .xsd mapping schema to match up the XML elements with corresponding database fields.

How can I now write out the data from the dataset and get it to use my .xsd mapping schema so that the XML output matches the required output?
Or should I be doing this another way?

Any help most appreciated.

Why not write a view on the SQL side that renames the fields to match your new definition?

This has the added benefit of letting the database server do the work, rather than the application server.

Thanks for your response.
I could do that, but it wouldn't sort out the complex types and nested elements properly.

I really would quite like to find out how to use the .xsd mapping file - so I could then run any query I want to, load the query results into a dataset (got that far), and always output in the same XML format.
