I have been a programmer since 1968 and I am learning VS2015 VB.NET. I have read three solid books on the subject and am writing code as an exercise to learn this VB.NET language.

After making the connection and creating an adapter to read the data, Then, I believe that the next step is to populate the dataset object.

Some books then suggest creating a DataView or DataTable. Some just work with the dataset. I am an MSDN subscriber/partner but their write-ups leave a lot to be desired at times.

What is the difference between the three? What are the conditions that you would use one over the other?

I will follow-up with another question so that you can get more points.

Thanks, in advance.
