Copying DataTables

I have a datatable that i'm binding to a Datagrid.

I'm copying it to another DT, and removing certain rows, but they seem to be deleting from the first one, ie:

 Dim Tempdt As New DataTable
            Tempdt = m_DT


then that row in m_DT is removed, how do i prevent this?

You need to use datatable.copy to get a new instance of the object. Otherwise, it just points to the existing datatable....

Dim copyDataTable As DataTable
copyDataTable = myDataTable.Copy()
