Hello, Firstly I am fairly new to C#. I am using VS 2005.
I am trying to figure out the best way to handle my data access. I am writing a Windows Mobile app but the logic should be pretty much the same as any other.
I see that you can add Data Sources to a solution using the Data Sources tab.
This essentialy gives you a dataset containg the selected table/s.
It would seem to make sense to me that I could access this dataset from any form in my application instead of creating a new one each time.
Can I do this?
Should I do this?
How do I do it?

Thanks for your help.
