Dim ds As New DataSet()

'creating a dataset
ds.Tables.Add(Table1)
'adding the table to dataset
DataGrid1.SetDataBinding(ds, "Customers")
'binding the table to datagrid
End Sub

End Class

use Entity Framework, Model first Approach.
Can't offer any code, learning the object model myself.
Check if out, Im sure it will do the job.

You can also use ADO.net to help you. Open a connection to you database.
Then you loop through your dataset and get each element of the dataset. Each time you loop you must call an insert query to save the data into your database.
This is maybe the last solution because if you have so many rows, it will use memory since you will have to do the process as many times as you have the rows.
Let me know if it works.
