i have tried using the ReadXml method already but it seems as if the dataset is splitting the apsettings.xml data into 24 tables whilst i want it in a single table with three columns.

here is the code

public static DataSet GetDataSet()
            var ds = new DataSet();
           return ds;

bt after debugging, the method returns ds with 24 tables
