Does anyone have a good example of how to update a one to many relationship using Linq to SQL in VB?  I can get the parent table updated but am having trouble updating the child tables.  I know how to do it using ASP.NET and love using L2Q in it.  Am now trying to learn the nuances in the syntax for a VB.NET application.  Have been searching the Net for a while on this but haven't found a good explanation.
Thanks for any help in this.

Figured out the insert:
dim db as mydatacontext
dim parent  as new parenttable With _ 
  {.ID = myID, _
   .fieldTwo = textbox2.text, _
    .fieldThree = textbox3.text}

dim child  as new childttable With _ 
  {.childfield1 = textbox4.text, _
    .childfield2 = textbox5.text}

parent.childtables.add(child)
db.parenttables.insertonsubmit(parent)

Open in new window
