Get a DataRow from a DataView--Import from one DataSet to another

In VB .NET 2003, I want to import several records from one DataSet to another. I can easily isolate the records I want using a .RowFilter on a DataView, but I can't figure out how to import the results to the second DataSet, because .ImportRow wants a DataRow as input, and a DataView structures its results as DataRowView. Trying to do a CType(drview, DataRow) gives an error. I'm sure there must be something simple I'm missing, but I have no idea what the process would be.

(If there's a better way to select the proper records from the first dataset, I'm up for that, though I wouldn't mind understanding DataView usage a bit better in any case.)

A DataRowView has a .Row property, which returns a DataRow: that is, the relevant DataRow from the DataTable on which the DataView is based.

Another way would be to use .Select on the DataTable itself, with text similar to that you would use in DataView.RowFilter.
