I have a dataset
dim objBatchRecords as new dataset

There is a field in there called supplier.

I want a count of the distinct suppliers.

Is there a way of finding this from the dataset and if so how?

You can get the distinct Suppliers using these commands:

       dim DistinctColumns(0) as string
       DistinctColumns(0)  = "suppliers"
       Dim DistinctSuppliers As DataTable= objBatchRecords.Tables(0).DefaultView.ToTable(true, DistinctColumns)
