    class Program
        static void Main(string[] args)

            // Create the Connection, DataAdapter, and DataSet.

            string connectionString = "Data Source=localhost;Initial Catalog=NORTHWND;" + "Integrated Security=true";
            SqlConnection con = new SqlConnection(connectionString);
            string sqlCat = "SELECT CategoryID, CategoryName FROM Categories";
            string sqlProd = "SELECT ProductName, CategoryID FROM Products";

            SqlDataAdapter da = new SqlDataAdapter(sqlCat, con);

Did you bother to read the documentation? ChildViews and Relations It even has sample code to do what you want.

In general, though, most people don't use the DataSet to do that work since that requires the server to send all the data to the client and for the client to hold all the data in memory. Instead most people let the server do all the work by using the SQL JOIN keyword when selecting data.
