I am reading an xml file external to my application and want to display this information on a grid for the user to review prior to updating to tables.

I can read the info into a dataset but I am not sure how to populate the grid with this information - seems to require a dataadaptor linked to the database. I am hoping to do this without creating temporary tables.

Appreciate it if someone could point me in the right direction to do this.

If thegrid yourefer tois a datagridview (or even a datagrid) simply set the datasource, e.g
Me.DataGridView1.DataSource = DataSet1.Tables(0)

Open in new window

(assumes the dataset is called DataSet1 and the datagridview DataGridView1)
