Hello all.  I am currently trying to use a repeater but open to other options.  I have a dataset that looks like the following attached code I have a static dataset I am showing here.   I need the data to group by ProjectID and show the Description and then below the records but also by PurchaseType in seperate repeaters or datalist etc. such as:

Title: Oh snap I found a squirrel
Purchase Date   OrderNumber   Amount
03/10/2008        00179               150.00
03/08/2008        00180                 25.00
....
Title: Questions and Answers on Life Insurance
Purchase Date  OrderNumber   Amount
03/06/2008       00182             2010.95
.....

any help on best way to split this up?  I have a repeater but because I have one dataset I am having trouble creating the relation and distinct off projectid.  Not sure it is the best way but need some help.
protected static DataSet MainDataSet()

    {

        DataSet ds;

        System.Data.DataTable dt;
 

        ds = new DataSet();

        dt = new DataTable();
 

        // Columns

        DataColumn ProjectID;

        DataColumn Description;

        DataColumn PurchaseDate;

        DataColumn PurchaseType;

        DataColumn OrderNumber;

        DataColumn Amount;
 

        // Initialize the columns

        ProjectID = new DataColumn("ProjectID");

        Description = new DataColumn("Description");

        PurchaseDate = new DataColumn("PurchaseDate");

        PurchaseType = new DataColumn("PurchaseType");

        OrderNumber = new DataColumn("OrderNumber");

        Amount = new DataColumn("Amount");
 

        // Add columns

        dt.Columns.Add(ProjectID);

        dt.Columns.Add(Description);

        dt.Columns.Add(PurchaseDate);

        dt.Columns.Add(PurchaseType);

        dt.Columns.Add(OrderNumber);

        dt.Columns.Add(Amount);
 

        //Add DataRows to DataTable
