I have a dataset that I populate from and SQL Server database and then add a new column to from within my code.  The purpose of that  new column is to store a value that is calculated from within my based on the current date.   I have all of this part of my coding working ok  

What I want to do now is group all of the data by the new column I added so I can use it in a report

Can this be done?  The column I want to group on is not part of the original dataset but the new column I added and the value that was stored in it.

I'm using vb.net, .NET Framework  4.0

You can use LINQ to do grouping. Example here

You can also loop through the table and do it manually. Example here

You might be able to define the extra column in the query itself, as a calculated column, and perform the grouping in the query itself. Depending on the operations that you need to do, this is usually faster to do it on the server than do in code.

Then, the result of you query would already be grouped.
