It is not possible to use SQL Select statements to filter a DataSet.  The DataTable has the .Select method, but it is only simple filter expressions, such as:

   DataRow[] findRows = table.Select( "Name = 'Bob' );

You can Query a DataTable:

DataTable table = new DataTable();
// fill rows
DataRow[] rows = table.Select("{field} = {value}","{sortcolumn}");

the first parameter is essentially the WHERE clause, and the second (optional) parameter is the ORDER BY clause
