Not able to change data in my System.Data.DataTable object

I have a table which I load from a reader object. The table has two columns. The first one is "Name" and the second one is "Explanation"

 At line 3 below a ReadOnlyException that is thrown telling me that Column "Name" is read only.
I haven't been able to set the read only attribute of the first column to turn of the read only attribute. Meaning setting it to False. Can someone help me out?

1    Dim table As New DataTable()
2     table.Load(reader)
3    table(0)(0) = "Hello"

You can allow write to Name column by:
table.Columns("Name").ReadOnly = False
