Hello all experts. I am populating a datagrid from a dataset. Afterwards I want to be able to insert a new column at positon zero. I am not using sql or any database. My grid data is all hardcode. Any help would be much appreciated.

just adding a column to the dataset should show up in the datagrid.
you want to show the column as the first column ( at position zero );

I would create a new dataset and add the column you want to add and then copy the others... then merge.

                  DataSet newDS = new DataSet();                  
                  newDS.Tables.Add(new DataTable(ds.Tables[0].TableName));
                  newDS.Tables[0].Columns.Add(new DataColumn("MyFirstColumn",typeof(string)));                  
                  for( int i = 0; i < ds.Tables[0].Columns.Count;i++)
                  {
                        newDS.Tables[0].Columns.Add(new DataColumn(ds.Tables[0].Columns[i].ColumnName, ds.Tables[0].Columns[i].DataType ));
                  }                  
                  newDS.Merge(ds);
                  dataGrid1.DataSource = newDS.Tables[0];
