My DataSet contains two datatable.

Use DataColumn array:

  new DataColumn[] {ds.Tables[0].Columns[0], ds.Tables[0].Columns[1]},
  new DataColumn[] {ds.Tables[1].Columns[0], ds.Tables[1].Columns[0]}

Typo-error in my prev post, my apologies

Use DataColumn array:

  new DataColumn[] {ds.Tables[0].Columns[0], ds.Tables[0].Columns[1]},
  new DataColumn[] {ds.Tables[1].Columns[0], ds.Tables[1].Columns[1]}
