Question about Dataview and Datatable relations in a Dataset

I have an items table and an order details table. In the order details table I have Qty and ItemID. In the items table I have ID, Part Number and Description. I have created a relation between these two tables in the Dataset. Key is Items.ID and Foreign Key is OrderDetails.ItemID.

I need a dataview to give me OrderDetails.ID, OrderDetails.Qty, Items.PartNumber, Items.Description.

Can I do this?

I want the DataView to be the datasource to my GridView.

It may be easier to just write a query to show that data

SELECT OrderDetails.ID, OrderDetails.Qty, Items.PartNumber, Items.Description
FROM OrderDetails INNER JOIN Items ON Items.ID = OrderDetails.ItemID

I am trying not to use a query because I want access to both data tables in the dataset. If it is possible it will save me a ton of work if i can display this way.

you can use relations but you will need two grids unless you use a custom grid.  i use infragistics ultragrid,  you can have as many subtables as you want with it
