intercept data adapter fill method events

Hi all,

Is there anyway to intercept the fill method events when filling a dataset?
I wish to analyze data as it is going into a dataset's datatable (or tables) to process the information.
Currently, the only way I know how to do this is to parse the datatables again to look for values and modify (e.g. null checking) them OR by using a SQLdatareader and looping as each row is being filled.
The dataset, while convenient, is a bit too slow when having to re-loop through the records afterwards (ie going through it twice is a waste of time) to make changes that could have been made while the data is loading.
Is this possible? (in .Net 1.1)

Thanks!

Would it be possible to process that through the database system (SQL statements) instead?

Actually, yes, this is already what I do now for any new DBs created (using SQL's "ISNULL" for null date fields in SPs and CASTing timestamps to bigints, etc.).  My question is probably moot since I could never use the update or insert via a dataset regardless.
