I have a problem when i'm trying to update an SQL Server CE Database from a dataset.

Basically I have 2 tables that are on the same dataset. One table is loaded directly using a dataadapter from SQL Server CE database and the other one is loaded from XML. What I need to do is to save the datatable that I loaded from the XML into the SQL Server CE database.

Before the last update the mywareDS  containts 2 tables mywareDS.Tables[0] and   mywareDS .Tables[1] that contain the correct data. The mywareDS.Tables[1]  as you can see from the XSD has 2 fields;WAREH_ID and WAREH_NAME.  The mywareDS.Tables[0]  has more than 2 fields including WAREH_ID and WAREH_NAME.  

I have the following code that does not work :

   private void pictureBox1_Click_1(object sender, EventArgs e)

            string temp = "temp.sdf";
            string connstr = @"Data Source=" + temp;
            DataSet mywareDS = new DataSet();
            using (SqlCeConnection conn = new SqlCeConnection(connstr))

            string dmlPackageInfo = "SELECT * FROM WARH";
            string dmlInsertPackage = "INSERT INTO " +
                                    "WARH(WAREH_ID, WAREH_NAME) " +
                                    "VALUES (?, ?)";
            string dmlDeletePackage = "DELETE FROM " +
            SqlCeDataAdapter daPackages = new SqlCeDataAdapter();
            daPackages.SelectCommand = new SqlCeCommand(dmlPackageInfo, conn);

            daPackages.InsertCommand = new SqlCeCommand(dmlInsertPackage, conn);
            daPackages.InsertCommand.Parameters.Add("WAREH_ID", SqlDbType.Int);
            daPackages.InsertCommand.Parameters.Add("WAREH_NAME", SqlDbType.NVarChar);

            daPackages.DeleteCommand = new SqlCeCommand(dmlDeletePackage, conn);
            String xmlFileName = "MyWAREH.xml";
            String xsdFileName = "MyWAREH.xsd";

            FileStream FsXSD = new FileStream(xsdFileName, FileMode.Open);            
            FileStream FsXML = new FileStream(xmlFileName, FileMode.Open);

            // Load the schema into the DataSet.
            XmlTextReader xtrXSD = new XmlTextReader(FsXSD);

            // Load the data into the DataSet.
            XmlTextReader xtrXML = new XmlTextReader(FsXML);
           //so basically the problem lies right here ***********************************************


--- the xsd looks  like the following

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
 <xs:schema id="NewDataSet" xmlns="" xmlns:xs="" xmlns:msdata="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:xml-msdata">
    <xs:element name="NewDataSet" msdata:IsDataSet="true" msdata:MainDataTable="WARH" msdata:UseCurrentLocale="true">
        <xs:choice minOccurs="0" maxOccurs="unbounded">
          <xs:element name="WARH">
                <xs:element name="WAREH_ID" type="xs:int" />
                <xs:element name="WAREH_NAME" minOccurs="0">
                    <xs:restriction base="xs:string">
                      <xs:maxLength value="50" />
      <xs:unique name="Constraint1" msdata:PrimaryKey="true">
        <xs:selector xpath=".//WARH" />
        <xs:field xpath="WAREH_ID" />
