Hi

What VB.net code would I use to join 3 datatables by doing an inner join on the first two
columns/fields? The first two fields are of course the same.

hi...
Try this examples

SELECT a.sales_id, d.bus_title, s.cat_id
FROM tbl_sales a
INNER JOIN tb_sales_category s ON a.sales_id = s.sales_id
INNER JOIN tbl_business      d ON a.bus_id   = d.bus_id
INNER JOIN tb_category       b ON s.cat_id   = b.cat_id

or

SELECT p.Name, v.Name
FROM Production.Product p
JOIN Purchasing.ProductVendor pv
ON p.ProductID = pv.ProductID
JOIN Purchasing.Vendor v
ON pv.VendorID = v.VendorID
WHERE ProductSubcategoryID = 15
ORDER BY v.Name

You would need to add these datatables into a dataset and then add DataRelations for these tables. Example below
