I have automatically generated a DataSet that only references one of the tables in my .mdb file (see screendump).
I cannot figure out how to add some of the other tables that are in that .mdb file.

When I right click, the "Add" menu shows the following items:


I clicked on TableAdapter and that initiated a Wizard that did the job.
