I am trying to set up a hierarchical relationship between 2 tables in a datset. I have a table tblParent and a table tblChildren but not all Children have Parents.

When I try to display, I get the error: This constraint cannot be enabled as not all values have corresponding parent values

Is it possible to have 'orphans' and if so how to I set up this relationship so it will allow children with no parents ?

Can anyone help ?

No, you can not do that with a datarelation object, what are you trying to achieve exactly, maybe there is another way to achieve the same.

Just turn the constraints off when creating the relation, the false at the end of the line:

MyDataSet.Relations.Add(TempRelationName, TempRelationColumnParent, TempRelationColumnChild, False)

Of course, you may have other problems later...
