Pass dataset row to function


I have a dataset row with some columns which need to be calulated each time the row is read.  As this will happen at a number of points in my project I am looking for a way of being able to create a function which I can call in any form to carry out the calculation rather than having to duplicate the code in each form.  Basically I would like to be able pass the datarow to the function, carry out the calculations and then return the datarow with the new  values.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Check this sample

Dim dt As New DataTable()

dt.Rows.Add("Scott", "1")
dt.Rows.Add("Tom", "2")
dt.Rows.Add("Amy", "3")
dt.Rows.Add("John", "4")

For k As Integer = 0 To dt.Rows.Count - 1
