I am trying to find and edit a row in a datatable.

I set up a new datarow dr.

dr = catalogues.CatalogueTypes.Rows.Find(oldCatalogueIDCode)

Great this gets me the datarow to edit, then i

dr.BeginEdit()
dr(catalogues.CatalogueTypes.CatalogueIDColumn.ColumnName) = newCatalogueIDCode

This gives the new datarow dr a new catalogueid in the catalogueidcolumn

I then try and accept the changes

dr.AcceptChanges()
catalogues.CatalogueTypes.AcceptChanges()

BUT the dataset doesn't get updated or changed just the datarow dr.
If i specify directly the datarow eg.

dr = catalogues.CatalogueTypes.Rows(2)

This works no problems.

So, how do i find a row given a value and then edit it in the datatable and acceptchanges.

Thank you for any help.

All I have right now is a datagrid sample:

you need to have a primary key in the datagrid

dim ds as dataset
dim sTableName as string = "MYTABLE"
dim myDataAdapter As OleDb.OleDbDataAdapter
 
'dg is my datagrid
     '*****************
        'BEGIN EDIT CODE go get primary key
        Dim pk(0) As DataColumn
        pk(0) = ds.Tables(sTableName).Columns("MYID")   '<--- the name of your primary key
        ds.Tables(sTableName).PrimaryKey = pk

        '********* Use this for single edit mode **************
        CurRow = ds.Tables(sTableName).Rows.Find(dg.Item(dg.CurrentRowIndex, 0))
        CurRow.BeginEdit()
        CurRow("OnHand") = dg.Item(dg.CurrentRowIndex, 2)
        CurRow("Description") = dg.Item(dg.CurrentRowIndex, 1)
        CurRow.EndEdit()
        'MsgBox("Record edited successfully")
        CurRow.AcceptChanges()
        myDataAdapter.Update(ds.Tables(sTableName))
        'END EDIT CODE
