I am getting an error reading: Unable to cast object of type 'System.Data.DataTable' to type 'System.Data.DataRow'.

From my code:

   Dim rows As DataRow
        For Each rows In DtSet.Tables
            Me.myOutPutBuffer.AddRow()
            Me.myOutPutBuffer.HotelName = rows.Table.Columns(1).ToString()
        Next

I am not sure how to write this For Each loop properly?

You're enumerating the tables, not the rows.

Dim row As DataRow
For Each row In DtSet.Tables(someTableIndex).Rows
    Me.myOutPutBuffer.AddRow()
    Me.myOutPutBuffer.HotelName = row.Columns(1).ToString()
Next

I think it should be something like this:

Dim table As DataTable
Dim row As DataRow
For Each table In DtSet.Tables
	For Each row In table.Rows
		Me.myOutPutBuffer.AddRow()
		Me.myOutPutBuffer.HotelName = row(1).ToString()
	Next
Next

Depends on whether he wants all tables, or just the one.

I am working with SQL Server 2005 SSISI.

 am connecting to a Excel Datasource.

I want to extract the rows from an excel spreadsheet (as long as they have data).
