I need to know how to copy the filtered results of a datagrid into a dataset.

Here is how the filtered view is created.

  Private Sub filterdatagrid(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles _
       tbassetmodelnumber.TextChanged, _
        tbassetname.TextChanged, _
        tbassetserialnumber.TextChanged, _
        tbsearchbuildings.TextChanged, _
        tbsearchdistributor.TextChanged, _
        tbsearchgeneralledgername.TextChanged, _
        tbsearchgeneralledgernumber.TextChanged, _
        tbsearchlocationroom.TextChanged, _
        tbsearchmanufacturer.TextChanged, _
        tbacquistionscost.TextChanged, _
        tbacquistionecost.TextChanged, _
        dtpassetacquistionsdate.ValueChanged, _
            Dim filterstring As String = ""
            Dim needand As Boolean = False
            For Each ctrl As Control In gbfilsterassetlist.Controls
                If TypeOf ctrl Is TextBox Then
                    If ctrl.Tag.ToString.Equals("Asset Acquisition Cost") Then
                        If tbacquistionscost.Text.Length > 0 And tbacquistionecost.Text.Length > 0 Then
                            If needand Then
                                filterstring = filterstring & " and "
                            End If
                            filterstring = filterstring & "([" & ctrl.Tag & "] >= " & tbacquistionscost.Text & ") and ([" & ctrl.Tag & "] <= " & tbacquistionecost.Text & ")"
                            needand = True
                        End If
                        If ctrl.Text.Length > 0 Then
                            If needand Then
                                filterstring = filterstring & " and "
                            End If
                            filterstring = filterstring & "([" & ctrl.Tag & "] like '*" & ctrl.Text & "*')"
                            needand = True
                        End If
                    End If
                ElseIf TypeOf ctrl Is DateTimePicker Then
                    If needand Then
                        filterstring = filterstring & " and "
                    End If
                    If dtpassetacquistionsdate.Value = Date.Today And dtpassetacquistionedate.Value = Date.Today Then
                        filterstring = filterstring & "([" & ctrl.Tag & "] >= #" & dtpassetacquistionsdate.Value & "#) and ([" & ctrl.Tag & "] <= #" & dtpassetacquistionedate.Value & "#)"
                        needand = True
                    End If
                End If
            Next ctrl
            dvgridview.RowFilter = filterstring
            dvgridview.RowStateFilter = DataViewRowState.CurrentRows
        Catch ex As Exception
            mainform.errorwrite("Fixed Assets Select Assets" & ex.ToString)
        End Try
    End Sub
