Namespace:  System.Data
Assembly:  System.Data (in System.Data.dll)

public string Prefix { get; set; }

private void ReadData(DataSet thisDataSet)
{
    thisDataSet.Namespace = "CorporationA";
    thisDataSet.Prefix = "DivisionA";

    // Read schema and data. 
    string fileName = "CorporationA_Schema.xml";
    thisDataSet.ReadXmlSchema(fileName);
    fileName = "DivisionA_Report.xml";
    thisDataSet.ReadXml(fileName);
}
