you would have to create a dataview, then you can create datatables from there:

DataView dv = new DataView(datatable);

DataTable newTable1 = dv.ToTable("OrderDesc",
             false, new string[] { "ORDER", "DESCRIPTION" });
DataTable newTable2 = dv.ToTable("Rest",
             false, new string[] { "FIRSTNAME", "LASTNAME", "ADDRESS", "ZIP" });

now you need to create a dataset and add these two new tables.
DataSet dataset1 = new DataSet("MyNewDataset");
dataset1.Tables.Add(newTable1);
dataset1.Tables.Add(newTable2);

totable is a method of dataview that extracts the info to a datatable. look at the MSDN docs to find out how it works.
nice thing about ToTable is that it extract only certain columns as you can see from what i posted. it avoids loops that you may need to write otherwise

to add an autoincrement column to a datatable you would do something like:


DataColumn workColumn = newTable2.Columns.Add("CustomerID", typeof(Int32));
workColumn.AutoIncrement = true;
workColumn.AutoIncrementSeed = 1;
workColumn.AutoIncrementStep = 1;

with the technique i posted add the autoincrement replacing newTable2 with the name of your original datatable. then proceed with the totable technique and because the way we constructed it it will drop the autocolumn and the new tables wont have it.

i believe the proper way to do it would be to create a new thread, in any case to get help from other experts as well. just put your new question and a link to this one if people want to see where you stand.
