You can do something like this in a DataTable. Would this help you?

I'm not sure that I understand very well wath you need, but you can try to use the Select method:

DataRow[] foundRows = YourDataTable.Select("Date > '1/1/00'");

hey newstatndard,
Give this a try,
you can uses the clone method of the dataset and then the select method to create a subset of the data.

private void GetClone(DataSet myDataSet)
{
   // Get a clone of the original DataSet.
   DataSet cloneSet;
   cloneSet = myDataSet.Clone();
   DataTable dt = cloneSet.Tables[0];
   string sWhere  = "column > 'a Value'";
   string sSort = "column DESC";
   ds.Select(sWhere, sSort);
}

That will give you a second dataaset based upon the first and allow you to generate a subset.
