You could start by asking a proper question; the above is far from clear.

I want a data set of essay

And how does that make anything more clear? Essays do not contain data sets so your question does not even make any sense.

Okay... How about you try again? Define what an essay is. Define what a data set is. What does a GUID have to do with anything? What is a set of essay? Why do your other questions actually make some limited sense but this question makes no sense at all? Did your account get hacked? Maybe you could go to google translate and type your question in whatever your native language is and get a translation for it in English. Even though your profile says that you are in the US I get the distinct impression that you are actually not.

The dataset contains a collection of papers

Please stop and think about your problem and try to explain, in more than just a few words, exactly what you are trying to do. Use the "Improve question" link to edit your post and write some proper details about what you are trying to do and what programming language you will be using.

In general - regarding this question and others you post (which I just reviewed briefly) - you will save quite a bit of time if you research your problem before posting a question. Not only will this save other people time, this will save time for you as well (so you don't have to clarify your question several times and still receive no answer). Also, you would have greater success if you spent some time learning more about the technologies you plan to employ and developing a solid knowledge of the basics or fundamentals.

If you want a good answer to your question or solution to your problem, you need to give more specifics regarding the problem and your situation, because people can't read your mind and the details you've given aren't sufficient for anyone to even attempt an answer. For instance, what will you need to do with this text-mining system? (when you respond, please don't say, "mine text" - tell us what you mean by that). Are you building the entire system, or merely a single part of it? What parts are currently in place that you must work around - data sources, user interface, etc.? You mention a GUID - what do you mean? I assume you are simply referring to the user interface - is there a user interface and, if so, what kind is it - Desktop, WinForms, WPF, Web, Silverlight, ASP.Net, etc.? Where are the essays going on the user interface? Do you need to choose controls to put the essays into, or do you have controls for them already? If so, what controls are you trying to put the essays into? What is the format of the essays - text files, word documents, pdfs, html, etc.? Where are they coming from - from the internet, files on your desktop or, or from a database of some sort? Do you need to save them to disk, or how do you plan to store them? You don't need to answer all of the questions I've posed above, but you should, at least, address the issues that relate to your question (most of the questions I've posed).

The quick answer to your question is that there is no practical way in which DataSets can hold lengthy strings such as essays (I'm not saying it's impossible, just that it wouldn't do much for you). DataSets hold relational database objects - DataTables - that each have columns and rows.

Consider the design of your project and try to identify a suitable structure. Here's a suggestion: if you don't need to preserve formatting, try putting each essay into a string. Your collection of essays could be held in a generic collection, such as a List (i.e., List<string>). Alternatively, you could look at using a content management system (CMS) to hold the essays. Research those topics and see if you can come up with a usable idea.

Best of luck!
