VB.net Problem loading dataset into DataGridView

Hi

I am using the following code to load the results of a dataset into a DataGridView. Nothing loads into the DataGridView. What am I doing wrong

    Private Sub btnLoadDataSet_Click(sender As System.Object, e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnLoadDataSet.Click
        Me.DataGridView1.DataSource = Create_DataSet()
    End Sub

    Function Create_DataSet() As DataSet
        Try
            Dim connectionString As String = Globals.ThisAddIn.oRIGHT.lblConnectionString.Text

            ' Create a SqlConnection to the Northwind database.
            Using connection As SqlConnection = New SqlConnection( _
               connectionString)

                ' Create a SqlDataAdapter for the Suppliers table.
                Dim suppliersAdapter As SqlDataAdapter = _
                   New SqlDataAdapter()

                ' A table mapping names the DataTable.
                suppliersAdapter.TableMappings.Add("Table", "Suppliers")

                ' Open the connection.
                connection.Open()
                Console.WriteLine("The SqlConnection is open.")

                ' Create a SqlCommand to retrieve Suppliers data.
                Dim suppliersCommand As SqlCommand = New SqlCommand( _
                   "SELECT ID, Company FROM Suppliers;", _
                   connection)
                suppliersCommand.CommandType = CommandType.Text

                ' Set the SqlDataAdapter's SelectCommand.
                suppliersAdapter.SelectCommand = suppliersCommand

                ' Fill the DataSet.
                Dim oDataSet As DataSet = New DataSet("Suppliers")
                suppliersAdapter.Fill(oDataSet)

                ' Create a second SqlDataAdapter and SqlCommand to get
                ' the Products table, a child table of Suppliers.  
                Dim productsAdapter As SqlDataAdapter = _
                    New SqlDataAdapter()
                productsAdapter.TableMappings.Add("Table", "Products")

                Dim productsCommand As SqlCommand = New SqlCommand( _
                   "SELECT ID, [Supplier IDs] FROM Products;", _
                   connection)
                productsAdapter.SelectCommand = productsCommand

                ' Fill the DataSet.
                productsAdapter.Fill(oDataSet)

                ' Close the connection.
                connection.Close()
                Console.WriteLine("The SqlConnection is closed.")

                ' Create a DataRelation to link the two tables
                ' based on the SupplierID.
                Dim parentColumn As DataColumn = _
                   oDataSet.Tables("Suppliers").Columns("ID")
                Dim childColumn As DataColumn = _
                   oDataSet.Tables("Products").Columns("Supplier IDs")
                Dim relation As DataRelation = New  _
                   System.Data.DataRelation("SuppliersProducts", _
                   parentColumn, childColumn)
                oDataSet.Relations.Add(relation)

                Console.WriteLine( _
                   "The {0} DataRelation has been created.", _
                   relation.RelationName)

                Create_DataSet = oDataSet
            End Using



        Catch ex As Exception
            MsgBox(ex.Message)
        End Try
    End Function

This line of code,

Me.DataGridView1.DataSource = Create_DataSet()

returns a DataSet object and assigns it to the DataSource of the DataGridView. The DataSet holds a collection of DataTables. So Which of the tables do you want the DataGridView to Display? For Example this should work to display the Products table.

Me.DataGridView1.DataSource = Create_DataSet().Tables("Products")

Hi

I wanted to display the combination of the Products and Suppliers table or say two columns from each

In that case you will need two DataGridView's one for the Products and another for the Suppliers.
