I am working with a very old database (unchangeable) which is not normalised very well. Because of this, the software we use must add and remove tables from time to time.

There is one table which keeps track of which other tables exist (I know, not pretty but thats what I have to work with).

How can I create a DataContext properly when I cannot know beforehand which tables exist? Can the mapping to objects be done programmatic-ally at runtime?
