Can a DatagridView suspend primary key contraints while editing?

Hi,

I have a Datagridview with data binding to a datatable from a dataset.
The bound table has the following columns:

RecYear primaryKey - also foreign key in linked table
RecID primaryKey - also foreign key in linked table
SampleID PrimaryKey
SampleType
SampleCount

I want to only show two columns in the grid: SampleType and SampleCount
Inserting new data into the table is taken care of by a stored procedure which takes five parameters: @SampleType and @SampleCount.
Pluss: @RecYear', '@RecID' and  '@SampleID output'.
@RecYear', '@RecID' I will set in my Save method of the form.
The sampleID is calculated in the stored procedure. So: Output parameter only

The problem is that the datagrid and the bound datatable cannot wait with the assigning of the primary keys until I want to 'batch save' added records. The grid throws error/warning after leaving the the first new row in the grid.

Is is possible for make the bound datatable ignore lacking  null-data for primary keys until updating the table on the SQL server?

I use dataset, tableadapter and bindingsource

The answer to both of the above is NO.
Primary keys in any relational database are not allowed to be NULL.

OK. Can you please give me hint how I can make the grid hold several rows of temporary (suggested) data which the user can choose to submit to the server or just discard? Any help would be much appreciated.
