[Mono-list] ADO and mono

I have a question about using ADO with mono. I'm reading a book that
explains the DataSet and DataAdapter but it doesn't make sense to me.
The book says that one creates a data Adaptor like this:
SqlDataAdapter( commandString, connectionString)
Okay, no problem there. Lets say the command string contains what is
suggested in the book:
“Select CompanyName, ContactName from Customers”
The book then says you create a DataSet:
DataSet ds = new DataSet;
Okay so far. Then the book says to fill the dataset:
My question is what is “Customers” about? Isn't it redundant since the
SQL statement already specified exactly what was to be returned?
