I'm using Visual Basic Express 2010 and can successfully get a dataset from an access database. How do I navigate through the dataset to create a collection of custom objects.

See attached code.
Dim conn As String = My.Settings.ConnectionString
Dim cmd As String = "SELECT Employees.* FROM Employees;"

Dim adapter As New OleDbDataAdapter(cmd, conn)
Dim topics As New DataSet

        'Users is a public declared collection
        Users = New Collection
        Dim Person As c_Person

        'This is where I am stuck
        Dim i As Long
        For i = 0 To topics.Tables(0).Rows.Count
            Person = New c_Person
