I am having a bit of a brain fart on this.  I have a table that is returned as a dataset \ datatable.  

The table is laid out like this.

Type     sysid                   DESCRIPTION
0           BLANK                BLANK      
1          OnlineTkt              Online Ticket
2          InstantTkt              Instant Ticket
4          Discount              Discount
5         Merchandise        Merchandise
6         PartnerPlay              Partner Play
7        DoubleTripler             Doubler/Tripler
9        2ndChance             Second Chance

I would expect this code to return the value dt.Rows(4)("Description") Discount, but instead return Merchandise.  Is there away I can look at this based on the Type Column versus Row number?  In other words Select Description where TYPE = x  ( which should is 4 )

You can use datatable select method
YourDataTable.Select("Type = 4"); which returns array of DataRow

Something like this

    foundRows = Your_data_table.Select("Type = " & x)

    Dim i As Integer
   
    For i = 0 to foundRows.GetUpperBound(0)
       Console.WriteLine(foundRows(i)("Description"))
    Next i
0

x = 4

dt.Select("Type = " & x.GetUpperBound(0).ToString() does not work....

The select will narrow this down to one row, is there an easier way to get the value of the Description column?  I need to send the datatable to another Call

You are doing wrong.

x = 4
Dim foundRows() As DataRow
foundRows = dt.Select("Type = " & x)
Dim your_description As String
your_description = foundRows(0)("Description")
0
