I have a dataset based off of the following sample XML

<ContactSet>
            <Contact email="jdoe@yahoo.com" contact_id="12122">
                  <Status>Online</Status>
                  <SynchronizeStatus>Modify</SynchronizeStatus>
                  <Title>Ms.</Title>
                  <FirstName>Jane</FirstName>
                  <MiddleName>Leigh</MiddleName>
                  <LastName>Doe</LastName>
                  <EntryID>1234</EntryID>
                  <EntryID>4567</EntryID>
            </Contact>
      </ContactSet>

I can select a contact by e-mail address simply by doing

ContactSet.ContactRow[] rows = (ContactSet.ContactRow[])contactSet.Contact.Select("email='"+email_or_id+"'");

Can I easily select a CONTACT based on the entryID?

I've tried doing

contactSet.EntryID.Select("EntryID='"+entryid+"'") but it says that it cannot find the EntryID column.  What should I be selecting on here?

Maybe it's because entryid occurs twice and it names them EntryID1 and EntryID2 or something (I'm just guessing).

Try itterating through the columns printing out the column names.. to see what it's calling them
