compact framework datagrid help

I have a dataset with 10 fields in it. I want to be able to display 5 of the fields in a datagrid. I don't want the first 5 fields to display just the last 5. first 5 fields will be in textboxes, last 5 wil be in a datagrid. I can't get it to work right. How can i get only a couple of fields to display in the datagrid not all of them.

Thank you,

Matt

Here is an example of hiding columns (width = 0), using a table style:

    Dim table As DataTable

    Dim style As New DataGridTableStyle
    style.MappingName = table.TableName

    Dim column As New DataGridTextBoxColumn
    column.MappingName = table.Columns(0).ColumnName
    column.Width = 0    'Hide

    style.GridColumnStyles.Add(column)

    column = New DataGridTextBoxColumn
    column.MappingName = table.Columns(1).ColumnName
    column.Width = 50   'Show

    Me.DataGrid1.TableStyles.Clear()
    Me.DataGrid1.TableStyles.Add(style)
