Visual Studio provides design-time tools for creating and editing data tables (DataTable). For an overview of what a DataTable is, see DataTables (ADO.NET).
The following topics explain how to create data tables, add them to typed datasets using the Dataset Designer, and create and edit the data columns (DataColumn) that define them.
The dialog boxes and menu commands you see might differ from those described in Help depending on your active settings or edition. To change your settings, choose Import and Export Settings on the Tools menu. For more information, see Visual Studio Settings.
