Assembly: System.Data (in system.data.dll)
Return ValueA new DataTable with the same structure (table schemas and constraints) and data as this DataTable. If these classes have been derived, the copy will also be of the same derived classes. Both the Copy and the Clone methods create a new DataTable with the same structure as the original DataTable. The new DataTable created by the Copy method has the same set of DataRows as the original table, but the new DataTable created by the Clone method does not contain any DataRows.
The following example uses the Copy method to create a copy of the original DataTable. The namespace name is not retained if it is inherited from a parent DataTable or DataSet.
