private void WriteSchemaWithFileStream(DataSet thisDataSet)
{
    // Set the file path and name. Modify this for your purposes.
    string filename="Schema.xml";

    // Create the FileStream object with the file name. 
    // Use FileMode.Create.
    System.IO.FileStream stream = 
        new System.IO.FileStream(filename,System.IO.FileMode.Create);

    // Write the schema to the file.
    thisDataSet.WriteXmlSchema(stream);

    // Close the FileStream.
    stream.Close();
