I am trying to do an update to the database based on my typed dataset, here is the code i have and it doesnt seem to be inserting anything.  

    Dim qds As New dsQuestions
    Dim qda As New dsQuestionsTableAdapters.QuestionsTableAdapter
    Dim qdt As New dsQuestions.QuestionsDataTable
    Dim qdr As dsQuestions.QuestionsRow

    Protected Sub btnAddAnother_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs)

        qdr = CType(qdt.NewRow, dsQuestions.QuestionsRow)

        With qdr
            Select Case ddlQuestionType.SelectedValue.ToLower
                Case "test"
                    .TestID = CInt(Request.QueryString("id"))
                Case "workbook"
                    .WorkbookID = CInt(Request.QueryString("id"))
            End Select
            .QuestionText = txtQuestion.Text
            .QuestionType = 1
            .Answer1 = TextBox1.Text
            .Answer2 = TextBox2.Text
            .Answer3 = TextBox3.Text
            .Answer4 = TextBox4.Text
            .Answer5 = TextBox5.Text
            If .HasErrors Then
                Throw New Exception("there are errors")
            End If

        End With

    End Sub

1) You are filling dsQuestions.QuestionsDataTable and not the DataSet, so why have a DataSet.
2) To add rows, follow these steps:

   a) Create a new row
   b) Set the values
   c) Add the row to the DataTable.

     qdr = qdt.NewQuestionsRow()
     qdr.QuestionText = txtQuestion.Text
     qdr.QuestionType = 1
     qdr.Answer1 = TextBox1.Text
     qdr.Answer2 = TextBox2.Text
     qdr.Answer3 = TextBox3.Text
     qdr.Answer4 = TextBox4.Text
     qdr.Answer5 = TextBox5.Text
