Developing a table-like structure in Visual Basic

Expert Greg Low explains how to create table-like structures in Visual Basic, so they are not connected to any database.

I want to create tables in VB, as in the tables will not be connected to any kind of database. Instead, I want to be able to develop a table-like structure in VB. Any advice on the best approach for this?
You can do this with the Dataset object (presuming we're talking about a VB.NET application, not a VB6 application). It can contain DataTables which are made up of DataColumns. You can even specify relations between the DataTables. These can be built in memory (ie. on the fly) and do not have to be associated with "real" database objects at all.
