I've got a number of tables in my DataSet, but I can't seem to control the order they are saved in, and sometimes this results in foreign key errors.

There are lots of useful tips about using DataSets - for example here:

but I can't find how to ensure one table is saved first to fix this problem. Can anyone point me in the right direction here?

Do not Update the DataSet. Update the individual tables, in the proper order. The mechanism for tables is the same as for a DataSet.

ok thanks - well it turns out after some investigation that with foreign keys we had code to check the relations between the tables and update consistently, but somehow bad data was getting into the DataSet which lost the relations - so yes, the answer is to update the tables individually in the proper order.
