ADO.NET - Populating multi-table dataset in MS Access

Hello,

I'm trying to figure out how to populate a dataset with 2 tables in ADO.NET.  The code below should work but it doesn't.  It throws an exception at the line 'da.Fill(dSetWF)' saying 'Characters found after end of SQL statement.'  I believe this is because microsoft Access doesn't allow multi statement queries.  What is the best way to accomplish what I am trying to do?

Thanks.

Here is my code:

dSetWF = new DataSetWorkflow();  //dSetWF is a typed dataset

OleDbDataAdapter da = new OleDbDataAdapter("select * from workflow; select * from comments;", cnWF);
da.TableMappings.Add("Table", "Workflow");
da.TableMappings.Add("Table1", "Comments");
da.Fill(dSetWF);

Two separate queries?

dSetWF = new DataSetWorkflow();  //dSetWF is a typed dataset

OleDbDataAdapter daWorkflow = new OleDbDataAdapter("select * from workflow", cnWF);
OleDbDataAdapter daComments = new OleDbDataAdapter("select * from comments", cnWF);
daWorkflow.Fill(dSetWF.Workflow);
daComments.Fill(dSetWF.Comments);

I don't believe the JET driver supports batch queries.

From http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa832700(office.10).aspx:

"Access databases cannot return multiple Recordset objects because Microsoft Jet SQL statements do not support multiple SELECT statements."

This is in reference to ADO but it will apply to ADO.NET as well
