Dataset [out, retval]

Dataset is a parameter of type IFeatureDataset**

This read-only property returns the IFeatureDataset interface on the feature dataset that this feature class is a memeber of. If the feature class is a stand alone feature class (it does not have a feature dataset), then this function will return a null pointer. A coverage feature class will return the IFeatureDataset interface to the coverage itself. Shapefiles will always return a null pointer.
