    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);
    }
