Re-fill dataset with different select statement

I have a procedure that fills an FPSpread/Grid.
In this procedure I need to check and see if there are any records in the first dataset and if not I need to refill the dataset with a different select string.
What would be the best way to do this?
Thanks
Function FillSpread() As DataTable
        Dim ds As New DataSet
 
        If DatabaseToUse() = BizObjs.DBType.Access Then
 
            Dim str As String = String.Empty
 
            If mbTaskCars Then
                str = SelectTaskCars()
            ElseIf mbTaskDetailsLU Then
                str = SelectTaskDetailsLU()
 
            End If
 
            Dim dc As New OleDb.OleDbConnection(ConnectionString)
            Dim da As New OleDb.OleDbDataAdapter(str, dc)
 
            Try
 
                da.Fill(ds)
                If ds.Tables(0).Rows.Count = 0 Then
 
                    ds.Clear()
                    
 
                End If
                dc.Close()
 
 
            Catch ex As Exception
                MessageBox.Show(ex.Message)
                dc.Close()
 
            End Try
        End If
 
        Return GenerateDataTable(ds)
 
    End Function

try something like this
 Function FillSpread() As DataTable
        Dim ds As New DataSet
 
        If DatabaseToUse() = BizObjs.DBType.Access Then
 
            Dim str As String = String.Empty
 
            If mbTaskCars Then
                str = SelectTaskCars()
            ElseIf mbTaskDetailsLU Then
                str = SelectTaskDetailsLU()
 
            End If
 
            Dim dc As New OleDb.OleDbConnection(ConnectionString)
            Dim da As New OleDb.OleDbDataAdapter(str, dc)
 
            Try
 
                da.Fill(ds)
                If ds.Tables(0).Rows.Count = 0 Then
 
                    ds.Clear()
                    str = " New Select stattemet"
                    Dim daNew As New OleDb.OleDbDataAdapter(str, dc)
                    daNew.Fill(ds)
                End If
                dc.Close()
 
 
            Catch ex As Exception
