Upgrading to .NET 2.0 error message

I just upgraded my ASP.NET application from v1.1 to v2.0, and now when I run my application, I get the following error message:
Cannot create a DataRelation if Parent or Child Columns are not in a DataSet.
What does this mean, and how can I get my application working again (hopefully by changing as little code as possible)? Thanks.

When you upgraded your code it might have not convert properly one of your dataset, check that all the column are present in them.

Are you by any chance using a property "Sorted=True" in the control that generates this problem? In that case check whether or not the dataset gets sorted. It should be sorted with this property set to true..

Regards,
Max.

Here's the line of code that's throwing the exception:
fileGuestRel = new DataRelation( "fileGuestRel", filesTable.Columns["file_id"], guestTable.Columns["file_id"] );
Both filesTable and guestTable are of type DataTable, not DataSet. Is there an easy way to convert them to DataSets, or is there another DataRelation constructor that takes DataTables as parameter. Again, this worked fine in v1.1, so I don't really want to change anything major if that can be avoided. Thanks.

Of course you can have DataRelation only in DataTable, could you tell me if the table filesTable and guestTable have the file_id column, also do they have EnforceConstraint  =True;
If you are building the DataTbale dinamillcly could you post that code too Thank you

In my code, right before the line that constructs the DataRelation, I have
HttpContext.Current.Trace.Write("filesTable.Columns[\"file_id\"] = " + filesTable.Columns["file_id"].ToString());
HttpContext.Current.Trace.Write("guestTable.Columns[\"file_id\"] = " + guestTable.Columns["file_id"].ToString());

The trace output on my web page reads:
filesTable.Columns["file_id"] = file_id
guestTable.Columns["file_id"] = file_id
So I assume that both tables have a "file_id" column.

Neither DataTable is dynamically created. They're both hard-coded SQL queries to a MSSQL database.
I don't know how to tell if EnforceConstraint=True. How do I do that?

fileGuestRel = new DataRelation( "fileGuestRel", filesTable.Columns["file_id"], guestTable.Columns["file_id"], /*you have a flag constraint here*/ false );

Also the DataTables are they in the same DataSet?

As for EnforceConstraint, I used the version of the constructor that takes no boolean variable, so it's whatever the default is. I don't have any DataSets defined in my code, so again, I think it's whatever the default is -- whether they all go into the same DataSet or different DataSets.

Ok it look like we needs to have this two DataTable in one DataSet.
