Printing a datagrid/dataset in c#

I have the following code in c#:
void SetupGridPrinter()
dataGridPrinter1 = new DataGridPrinter(dgQueryResults, printDocument1, Dataset1);
		private void printDocument1_PrintPage(object sender, System.Drawing.Printing.PrintPageEventArgs e)
			Graphics g = e.Graphics; 
			// Draw  a label title for the grid

			// draw the datagrid using the DrawDataGrid method passing the Graphics surface
			bool more = dataGridPrinter1.DrawDataGrid(g);

			// if there are more pages, set the flag to cause the form to trigger another print page event
			if (more == true)
				e.HasMorePages = true;

		private void btnPrint_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
			// Initialize the datagrid page and row properties
			dataGridPrinter1.PageNumber = 1;
			dataGridPrinter1.RowCount = 0;

			// Show the Print Dialog to set properties and print the document after ok is pressed.
			if (printDialog1.ShowDialog() == DialogResult.OK)


		void DrawTopLabel(Graphics g)
			int TopMargin = printDocument1.DefaultPageSettings.Margins.Top;

			//g.FillRectangle(new SolidBrush(label1.BackColor), label1.Location.X, label1.Location.Y + TopMargin, label1.Size.Width, label1.Size.Height);
			//g.DrawString(label1.Text, label1.Font, new SolidBrush(label1.ForeColor), label1.Location.X + 50, label1.Location.Y + TopMargin, new StringFormat());
I am getting an error on the boldered area of code stating that I cannot conert a dataset to a data table. What needs to be done to fix this?

The dataGridPrinter object wants a datatable. You passed a dataset. An implicit cast is not allowed, although they are not really the same things anyway. The dataset can contain datatables. Does dataGridPrinter really take a datagrid object as a parameter? If it does, passit the correct datatable from the dataset object such as:

Instead of "Dataset1", use "Dataset1.Tables["tableName"];
