A Simple Question on Relationships

I have two tables tblA and tblB.Both tables contain field "Name" but when i tried to add foreign
key relationships between them as

 Dim fk As New ForeignKeyConstraint(ds.Tables("tblA").Columns("Name"), ds.Tables("tblB").Columns("Name"))
        fk.AcceptRejectRule = AcceptRejectRule.Cascade
        fk.DeleteRule = Rule.Cascade
        fk.UpdateRule = Rule.Cascade
        ds.Tables("tblA").Constraints.Add(fk)
        ds.EnforceConstraints = True
It produces an error message as
"This constraint cannot be added since ForeignKey doesn't belong to table tblA".

Any hints?

This line

        ds.Tables("tblA").Constraints.Add(fk)

should be

        ds.Tables("tblB").Constraints.Add(fk)

Have a look at this

In the terms used in the example in that, tblA.Name is the parent and tblB.Name is the child, and the constraint should be added to the child table, not the parent table.
