You can translate the code of VB.NET to C# very easily yourself or for example here:

I am assuming that it is the data that you wish to import and not the structure also. If this is the case you can use the ReadXML method of the dataset object to read you data in.  Below is a snippet of code that may help.

             //  Create a dataset an populate it with the structure of the table the data should be imported into.
             DataSet oDS = new DataSet("Select * from tablename");

              // Read the XML document back in.
              //Create new FileStream to read schema with. sFileName contains the name, and path, of the XML file to be imported.
              FileStream fsReadXml = new System.IO.FileStream(sFileName, System.IO.FileMode.Open);

              // Create an XmlTextReader to read the file.
              System.Xml.XmlTextReader myXmlReader = new System.Xml.XmlTextReader(fsReadXml);

              //Finally read the xml data into the dataset.
              oDS.ReadXml(myXmlReader);

              // Close the XmlTextReader
              myXmlReader.Close();


Hope this helps.
