Create a new dataset with only the table you want then do what Bob suggested above.

'DataSet.WriteXML(path) and DataSet.ReadXML(path)

Hi there... try this..

    Sub WriteTableDataToXML(ByVal DS As DataSet, ByVal TableIndex As Int32, ByVal FileName As String)
        Dim TempDS As New DataSet
        TempDS.Tables.Add(DS.Tables(TableIndex))
        TempDS.WriteXml(FileName)
    End Sub

call it as , WriteTableDataToXML([DataSet Name],[0-based index of the table in dataset],[.xml file name to store in double quotes])

Make similar approach for reading too...

To read...

     Sub ReadTableDataFromXML(ByVal DS1 As DataSet, ByVal TableIndex As Int32, ByVal FileName As String)
        Dim TempDS As New DataSet
        TempDS.ReadXml(FileName)
        Dim DT As New DataTable
        DT = TempDS.Tables(TableIndex).Copy
        DS1.Tables.Add(DT)
    End Sub
call it as... ReadTableDataFromXML([Receiving DataSet Name],[0-based index of the table in XML file],[.xml file name to read from in double quotes])
