ArgumentException

null or empty string ("") is passed in and this table belongs to a collection.

DuplicateNameException

The table belongs to a collection that already has a table with the same name. (Comparison is case-sensitive).

The TableName is used to return this table from the parent DataSet object's DataTableCollection (returned by the Tables property).

The following example prints the TableName for each table in a collection of DataTable objects.

private void GetTableNames(DataSet dataSet)
{
    // Print each table's TableName. 
    foreach(DataTable table in dataSet.Tables)
    {
        Console.WriteLine(table.TableName);
    }
}
