I need to delete a row in one dataset that matches the row of another dataset :

        Dim row As DataRow
        For Each row In DSTemp.Rows
          . . . .
          if condition . . .

                 >>  I want to remove a row in "DataSet1" that matches the current row in "DSTemp", above

                    DataSet1.Tables(0).Rows.Remove(  --  the row that matches DSTemp --  )  ???

Note: datasets  DSTemp and DataSet1 are identical
Is it possible to get the "index" or current position of DSTemp and set it to DataSet1?
I have the primary key field:   row("ProductID")          thanks

Hi MikeMCSD,

I got the solution for ur problem

u have to write the code for doing that operation the caode will be as follows,
                                               DataSet ds = new DataSet();
                  ds = (DataSet)Session["Dataview"];

                  DataSet ds2  =new DataSet();
                  ds2 = (DataSet)Session["Data"];

                  for(int i=0; i<=ds.Tables[0].Rows.Count -1;i++)
                        DataRow re;
                        re = ds.Tables[0].Rows[i];
                        for(int j=0; j<=ds.Tables[0].Rows.Count -1;j++)
                              DataRow re1;
                              re1 = ds2.Tables[0].Rows[j];
                              if (re[0].ToString() == re1[0].ToString())                                 {
                                          DataGrid2.DataSource = ds2;


actauly i was calling this method on two dataset
ds and ds1

ds has 2 rows and ds1 has 4 rows out of witch 2 are iedentical to the ds rows(Both the database has onle one table and with same schema)

and calles this code on button click
ans used to session veriable to get the dataset back in the dataset object,

for the folowing line of code

u might have to change the value in place of 0 actually it represent the primary key column in the table.
if (re[0].ToString() == re1[0].ToString())

thanks Sandee . . but this is a Windows app. so I can't use Session, and
I'm using VB . . so I'm sure how to convert a lot of it.

Or u can user this code
--------------get ur two datasets-------------
Dim ds As DataSet = New DataSet ------first
Dim ds2 As DataSet = New DataSet --------second whose rows has to be deleted

Dim i As Integer = 0
While i <= ds.Tables(0).Rows.Count - 1
 Dim re As DataRow
 re = ds.Tables(0).Rows(i)
 Dim j As Integer = 0
 While j <= ds.Tables(0).Rows.Count - 1
   Dim re1 As DataRow
   re1 = ds2.Tables(0).Rows(j)
   If re(0).ToString = re1(0).ToString Then
     DataGrid2.DataSource = ds2
   End If
 End While
End While
