Are you aware that there is an option in Ranorex to convert C# code to VB code (and vice versa)? You can find it under menu Tools >> Convert Code To menu.

When you say "SimpleDataTable" are you talking about the Ranorex Data Connector type?

If so, why are you creating it at runtime?

Also, if you really need to dynamically create data sets at runtime, you should use a database, as SimpleDataTables, Excel, and CSV are all pretty static (and it is better to leave them that way).
