private static void DataTableColumnChanged()
{
    DataTable custTable = new DataTable("Customers");
    // add columns
    custTable.Columns.Add("id", typeof(int));
    custTable.Columns.Add("name", typeof(string));
    custTable.Columns.Add("address", typeof(string));

    // set PrimaryKey
    custTable.Columns["id"].Unique = true;
    custTable.PrimaryKey = new DataColumn[] { custTable.Columns["id"] };

    // add a ColumnChanged event handler for the table.
    custTable.ColumnChanged += new 
        DataColumnChangeEventHandler(Column_Changed );


    // add ten rows
    for(int id=1; id<=10; id++)
    {
        custTable.Rows.Add(
            new object[] { id, string.Format("customer{0}", id), 
            string.Format("address{0}", id) });
    }

    custTable.AcceptChanges();

    // change the name column in all the rows
    foreach(DataRow row in custTable.Rows )
    {
        row["name"] = string.Format("vip{0}", row["id"]);
    }

    Console.WriteLine("Column_Changed Event: name={0}; Column={1}; original name={2}", 
        e.Row["name"], e.Column.ColumnName, e.Row["name", DataRowVersion.Original]);
