I tried it but it didn't  work. Seem to work from a dataset but not a table, is there away to convert the data table to a dataset to use the code.

Are you still programming for framework 1.0 or 1.1

WriteXML was not supported on a DataTable in these versions, but has been since 2.0 (Visual Studio 2005).

If you are still on an old version, do yourself a favor and move to a newer version of Visual Studio and the framework. You can have the Express version for free if you program only from time to time, but if you are a professional and work in a group of 5 programmers or less, you can get the Community Edition, that is a free edition of the Professional.
