I want to be able to add rows to a datatable based on a selection from a dropdown box. So I know that you can use the ValueChangeListener to fire off an event where I should lookup the datatable and add rows to it, but I don't know how to look up the datatable nor do I know how to add a row to it once I've found it.

Any sample code out there?

Please get hold of a copy of Core JavaServer Faces by David Geary and Cay Horstmann. Chapter 5 covers this in detail.
