any1 help, basically iv wrote the code to search for a client name in a database(in access) and this is the code:

Private Sub BtnSearch_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs)
'search
If txtSearch.Text = "" Then MsgBox("Please type Client Name", MsgBoxStyle.Critical, "Enter Text") : Exit Sub

Dim MYDA As OleDbDataAdapter1 = New OleDbDataAdapter()
Dim MYDS As DataSet = New DataSet()

RS = New ADODB.Recordset()
RS.Open("SELECT * FROM CLIENT WHERE NAME LIKE '" & txtSearch.Text & "%' ", CN, ADODB.CursorTypeEnum.adOpenStatic, ADODB.LockTypeEnum.adLockOptimistic)

MYDA.Fill(MYDS, RS, "NAME")
DataGrid1.DataSource = MYDS.Tables(0)
End Sub

End Class

but it underlines the "OleDbDataAdapter1" in the

Dim MYDA As OleDbDataAdapter1 =. .......

but i dont know why as that is what my dataAdapter is called??
please help, id be very grateful!!!!!

Try adding these imports statements at the top before anything else:

Imports System()
Imports System.Data()
Imports System.Data.Oledb()

If you do not add those imports statements, then when you declare your dataadapter you will have to do something like this:

Dim MYDA As System.Data.Oledb.OleDbDataAdapter1 = New OleDbDataAdapter()

try using SQL rather than using multiple codes...
in your adodc properties, find the tab that contains the cmdunknown, i can't remember exactly where that place is...
then check SQl and type:
Select * from (name of table of the database)
ex Select * from emp
this makes the form connected to the database...
then create a textbox which you will input the search word
next, create a search command button...
type this command to be executed...
"Select * from (name of table) where (name of data to be seached eg. REG_NO) like '" & txtSEARCH.Text & "%" & "'"
this makes the program search the word which contains the words or letters that is in the text box...
i hope i helped you...
