I need to build a table with the results of different LINQ queries.  I was trying to do this with a data table but now sure of the syntax.  An example of what I'm trying to do is below.
After I add all the columns and create all the other LINQ queries, How do I add/update the data table with the results? Or is there a better way then using a data table? Was I build the table and create calculate columns the end results will end up in an excel spreadsheet.
Using VB 2008  framework 3.5.
Thanks


Dim ResultsTable as DataTable
Dim dc As New dcDSSDataContext
 
Dim TMADODList = From TMA In dc.vwCurrentTMA _
     Select TMA.DOD
Dim InterChgDODList = From IC In dc.datInterchangeableDOD _
      Select IC.DOD
 
Dim DODList = TMADODList.Union(InterChgDODList )
DODList = DODList.Distinct
 
ResultsTable = New DataTable("Results")
 
ResultsTable.Columns.Add("DOD", GetType(String))
ResultsTable.Columns.Add("Location", GetType(String))
'Other columns added here

I get CopyToDataTable() is not a member of System.Liq.IQueryable(Of String) error. Do I need to add a reference?
I got the datatable to add new rows with the following
For Each DOD in DODList
    ResultsTable.Rows.Add(New Object() {DOD})
Next

But how do I update Columns with the results of a different LINQ query?  I want to update the second Query?
