Does DataTable.ImportRow() take into account duplicates? In other words, if I try and import and exact duplicate row, will it import it anyways, or will it not since there is already a duplicate in there?
bool isActive; // true if the "Active Only" checkbox is checked
bool isValid;  // true if the "Valid Only" checkbox is checked

DataTable mainTable = GetMainTable();

DataTable newTable = mainTable.Clone();

if (isValid)
{
    DataRow[] rows = mainTable.Select("isValid = true");
    foreach (DataRow r in rows)
    {
        newTable.ImportRow(r);
    }
}

if (isActive)
{
    DataRow[] rows = mainTable.Select("startDate <= '" + DateTime.Now.ToShortDateString() + "' AND finishDate >= '" + DateTime.Now.ToShortDateString() + "'")
    foreach (DataRow r in rows)
    {
        newTable.ImportRow(r);
    }
}


There might be some rows that would be active AND valid, and thus those rows would be imported in duplicate. But will ImportRow() catch this or not?
