Greetings,

I have a complex Typed Dataset that I created in a Visual Studio 2005 C# project.

I would like to copy this typed dataset to and use it in another project.

What is the best way to do this?

when you create a typed dataset, it create 3-4 files. The only important file is .designer file which contains classes. You can add a new code file, name it to <dataset>.cs and copy the contents of .designer file to it. Now delete the original dataset (it deletes all the relevant files).
You can now use the code file as a dataset.

hope it helps.

I usually copy all the files dataset files over to the new project

Then include the file in the new project.... open the dataset and close it again. that recompiles the classes code.

The only change then is to correct the namespace in the <dataset>.cs file to whatever it should be in the new application.

The component I had missed was the change in name space.
