Tip: Merge Two DataTables, Preserving the Old Values

The datatable1.Merge(datatable2) statement will merge datatable2 into datatable1. You cannot retrieve the old values in the datatable1 after the merge happens.

Dim dtMerged As DataTable = New DataTable() 
dtMergerd = datatable1.Copy() 
dtMerged.Merge(datatable2, True)
