I have a VB.net project that is using Datasets and bound controlls to a SQL Express Database file. (.mdf).

Everything works fine but now I need to add a column to one of the tables in the database. How do I rebuild the dataset without erasing the old one. All my SQL-queries are saved in the dataset designer.

OK, Off course, when I posted the question after looking on the Internet for a solution for hours, I solved it by going through Visual Studio.

In the Datasources Window you can right click the dataset and run the configuration wizzard again.
