Asp.net Changing sitemaps on the fly

OK, I see this question has been asked and sometimes answered but still can't figure out what I'm doing wrong.  I have a few different sitemaps declared.  When a user logs in, the program gathers thier security level and assigns a sitemap based on who they are.  Can't get it to work, please help!

Here's the code:
In Site:Master
       <asp:SiteMapDataSource ID="SiteMapPublic" runat="server" />
       <asp:Menu runat="server" ID="MainMenu" CssClass="menu" EnableViewState="false" IncludeStyleBlock="false" StaticDisplayLevels="2"
            Orientation="Horizontal" DataSourceID="SiteMapPublic"/>

In Web.Config file:
   <siteMap defaultProvider="SiteMapQDSAdmin" enabled="true">
        <add name="SiteMapPublic" type="System.Web.XmlSiteMapProvider" siteMapFile="~/App_Data/Public.sitemap" />
        <add name="SiteMapQDSAdmin" type="System.Web.XmlSiteMapProvider" siteMapFile="~/App_Data/QDSAdmin.sitemap" />
        <add name="SiteMapQDSViewer" type="System.Web.XmlSiteMapProvider" siteMapFile="~/App_Data/QDSViewer.sitemap" />
        <add name="SiteMapVendor" type="System.Web.XmlSiteMapProvider" siteMapFile="~/App_Data/Vendor.sitemap" />          
        <add name="SiteMapClient" type="System.Web.XmlSiteMapProvider" siteMapFile="~/App_Data/Client.sitemap" />

Your question statement:

When a user logs in, the program gathers thier security level and assigns a sitemap based on who they are.  

So are you trying to set some sitemap to SiteMapDataSource at runtime?

If yes, in that case you can use: (Check more
