Creating relationship between tables in a Dataset based on multiple columns.


I looking for the syntax to create a relationship between tables in a dataset based on multiple columns. Please correct the following sample code.

Private Sub CreateRelation()
    ' Get the DataColumn objects from two DataTable objects in a DataSet.
    Dim parentCol As DataColumn
    Dim childCol As DataColumn
    ' Code to get the DataSet not shown here.
    parentCol = DataSet1.Tables("Customers").Columns("CustID","Code")
    childCol = DataSet1.Tables("Orders").Columns("CustID","Code")
    ' Create DataRelation.
    Dim relCustOrder As DataRelation
    relCustOrder = New DataRelation("CustomersOrders", parentCol, childCol)
    ' Add the relation to the DataSet.
 End Sub
