The following example uses the CanRemove to test whether each table can be removed from a DataSet. If so, the Remove method is called to remove the table.

private void RemoveTables()
{
    DataTable table;

    // presuming a DataGrid is displaying more than one table, get its DataSet.
    DataSet thisDataSet = (DataSet)DataGrid1.DataSource;
    while (thisDataSet.Tables.Count > 0)
    {
        table = thisDataSet.Tables[0];
        if (thisDataSet.Tables.CanRemove(table))
            thisDataSet.Tables.Remove(table);
