I'm getting an exception on SqlDataAdapter.Update().  

The error message is "Table: eeeHomeOffice.dbo.SalePayments Exception: The record can't be added or changed. Referential integrity rules require a related record in table 'SaleHeader'.".
 
I dumped the DataSet to XML and can't see any relationship problems.

How do I tell what row and table is having the problem?

What order are the records written out?  The SaleHeader is the first table in the set and SalePayments is second.  Is it possible that it's trying to write SalePayments records first?

Some of the data sets are working fine, only a small percentage throw the exception.

How are you working with the SqlDataAdapter?  Are you adding records to DataSet DataTables, and then calling the Update method?

Dim dtSynchTable As DataTable
Dim adapter As New SqlDataAdapter("", conn)
.....
adapter.Update(dtSynchTable)

Mostly they are new records, but could be changed ones as well.
Mostly looking to determine which row had the exception.

If you are adding rows to a single table at a time, then you need add them in the order of parent, and then child.

Unless you are using batch updates, you could AddHandler for the adapter's RowUpdated Event.  Have a look here

and here
