the easiest way is probably to just use aggregate columns (DataColumn.Expression) http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/cpref/html/frlrfSystemDataDataColumnClassExpressionTopic.asp also see http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/en-us/cpguide/html/cpconcreatingexpressioncolumns.asp and http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/en-us/dndive/html/data05312002.asp

an alternative would be to create the new row with code similar to ...

dim dt as DataTable = DataSet.Tables("Whatever")
dim dr as DataRow
dim Totals as DataRow = dt.NewRow()
dim i as integer
for i = 0 to Totals.Columns.Count - 1
      Totals[i] = 0
end for
foreach dr in dt
      for i = 0 to dr.Columns.Count - 1
            Totals[i] += dr[i];
      end for
end for
dt.Rows.Add(Totals)

this code assumes all fields are numeric, for real life you would probably want to check the datatype of the column.

Cheers,

Greg
