Here's a basic question.  What code do I use to retrieve values from a particular column in the data row?  I want to reference the column by column name not by column index.
Dim dstPadlockRow As DataSet
Dim dr As DataRow
Dim ColumnValue As String
      
.... ' omitted code

For Each dr In dstPadlockRow.Tables(0).Rows
   ColumnValue = dr.    <------------- What do I do here?
   .... ' more omitted code
Next
