You can sort using the DataView object of the datatable. Looks like you have some poor naming conventions in use. Is DataSet of type DataTable? You can use DataTable.DefaultView.Sort property

you can sort your rowcollection with linq

// create a sorted collection
var result = Workspace.DataTable.DataSet.OrderBy(r => r.SalesAmountDescr);

foreach (var item in result) Console.WriteLine(r.SalesAmountDescr);

r is lambda function. VB syntax is almost similar to C# in all cases except of LINQ :). So, VB:
Dim result = Workspace.DataTable.DataSet.OrderBy(Function(r) r.SalesAmountDescr)
