I am trying to do a join on two dattables and select columns from the two tables

 var result = from dataRows1 in infocodesDT.AsEnumerable()
                          join dataRows2 in mqDT.AsEnumerable()
                          on dataRows1["Code"] equals dataRows2["Code"]
                          select new DataRow  { dataRows1["Code"] ,dataRows1["Desc"],  dataRows2["BusDate"] , dataRows2["Price"]};

Gives me the foll error

.Data.DataRow.DataRow(System.Data.DataRowBuilder)' is inaccessible due to its protection level

you can't create dynamic DataRow cause it bound to schema.
here u try to create new schema joined from two tables.
so what u want to do is this:

var result = from dataRows1 in amenity.AsEnumerable()
                         join dataRows2 in hotelDetails.AsEnumerable()
                         on dataRows1["Code"] equals dataRows2["Code"]
                         select new { code = dataRows1["Code"], desc = dataRows1["Desc"], busDate = dataRows2["BusDate"], price = dataRows2["Price"] };

Hi  countrymeister;

According to Microsoft documentation DataRoad and DataRowBuilder are for internal use only. What you may want to do is to extract the data from each row and then build a new table with the results.

this code create the joined table first, then use NewRow.ItemArray to file the properties from both tables:
            DataTable joinedTable = new DataTable();
            joinedTable.Columns.Add("Code");
            joinedTable.Columns.Add("Desc");
            joinedTable.Columns.Add("BusDate");
            joinedTable.Columns.Add("Price");
            
            var result = from dataRows1 in amenity.AsEnumerable()
                         join dataRows2 in hotelDetails.AsEnumerable()
                         on dataRows1["Code"] equals dataRows2["Code"]
                         select joinedTable.NewRow().ItemArray = new object[]{
                             dataRows1["Code"],
                             dataRows1["Desc"],
                             dataRows2["BusDate"], 
                             dataRows2["Price"] };

I need to get the var result into a datatable, so int the second example, will the result populate the datatable.

Your first example works but I need the var result to a datatable

here:
            DataTable joinedTable = new DataTable();
            joinedTable.Columns.Add("Code");
            joinedTable.Columns.Add("Desc");
            joinedTable.Columns.Add("BusDate");
            joinedTable.Columns.Add("Price");

            var result = from dataRows1 in amenity.AsEnumerable()
                         join dataRows2 in hotelDetails.AsEnumerable()
                         on dataRows1["Code"] equals dataRows2["Code"]
                         select joinedTable.NewRow().ItemArray = new object[]{
                             dataRows1["Code"],
                             dataRows1["Desc"],
                             dataRows2["BusDate"], 
                             dataRows2["Price"] };
            foreach (var row in result)
            {
                joinedTable.Rows.Add(row);
            }
