The Prefix property is used throughout an XML document to identify elements which belong to the namespace of the DataSet object (as set by the Namespace property).

The following example sets the Prefix before calling the ReadXml method.

Private Sub ReadData(thisDataSet As DataSet)
    thisDataSet.Namespace = "CorporationA"
    thisDataSet.Prefix = "DivisionA"

    ' Read schema and data.
    Dim fileName As String = "CorporationA_Schema.xml"
    thisDataSet.ReadXmlSchema(fileName)
    fileName = "DivisionA_Report.xml"
    thisDataSet.ReadXml(fileName)
End Sub
