Hi,

I am exporting a dataset to an XML file and I am having trouble getting the root node to be correct.  I am using Visual Studio 2008, ASP.NET C#.  My XML needs to be in the following format:

- <Navision_SO_1>
- <General>
  <Customer_Number>CC0001</Customer_Number>
  <External_Document_Number>85710</External_Document_Number>
  <Requested_Delivery_Date>02/04/2009</Requested_Delivery_Date>
  <Ship_To_Code>011</Ship_To_Code>
  </General>
- <Lines>
  <External_Document_Number>85710</External_Document_Number>
  <Number>0</Number>
  <Quantity>1</Quantity>
  </Lines>
</Navision_SO_1>

Instead I am getting the following - note the different root node:

- <NewDataSet xmlns="Navision_SO_1">
- <General>
  <Customer_Number>CC0001</Customer_Number>
  <External_Document_Number>85710</External_Document_Number>
  <Requested_Delivery_Date>02/04/2009</Requested_Delivery_Date>
  <Ship_To_Code>011</Ship_To_Code>
  </General>
- <Lines>
  <External_Document_Number>85710</External_Document_Number>
  <Number>0</Number>
  <Quantity>1</Quantity>
  </Lines>
</NewDataSet>

I am using the code below to change the names but it isn't working correctly. Any help greatly appreciated.

// Step 2d - Sort out the names so the Xml looks correct
tempDs.Tables["Order_Header"].TableName = "General";
tempDs.Tables["Order_Details"].TableName = "Lines";
tempDs.Namespace = "Navision_SO_1";
