updating multiple tables using ADO.NET 2 (VB)

I'm writing an application using ADO.NET 2 and I'm fine getting and updating data from one table, but  I'm confused about updating multiple related tables.

I've got a parent table that has 2 child tables, say a customer table that has two child tables phoneNumbers and deliveryaddresses.

I need to retrieve a customer with a particular id, and all its child tables. These will then be updated in one transaction.


What is the best way to do this?

- do I need one dataadapter per table? (I've tried using only one adapter, but can't get updates to work)

- should I get the tables into one dataset or separate datasets?

(I've got 2 ado.net books and 1 vb.net book and none of them describe this scenario - any suggestions for a good reference book?)

What database are you trying to modify (SQL, Access ??)

No You cannot update multiple table with sqlCommandBuilder.

Better approach , I thinik, have mulitple sqlCommnad Object for each update. And fire action query using sqlCommand.ExecuteNonQuery

I've implemented this by having a separate dataAdapter per table.
