    Hi tessalee

    Since it involves many steps and you could easily miss one step or do something wrong before you use DataSet Project node, so DataSet Project node is disappeared.

    For this issue, it's recommended to follow the steps to separate Datasets and TableAdapters into different projects, and check whether DataSet Project node will appear.

    If it still has same issue, please don’t hesitate to let me know,

    Regards

    Hi tessalee

    The Dataset Project property was added to allow N-Tier development with the Typed Dataset by allowing developers to put type information (dataset, datatable) into a separate assembly so that it can be shared among multiple projects.

    This property is disabled in all Express SKUs because they focus on local database scenario.  N-Tier scenarios do not apply there.

    Please take a look at this discussion that Problem with 'Dataset Project' when projects are in Solution Folders, and check whether you have similar situation, 

    Regards
