Hi Everyone.

I am totally new here and this is my first post..
I have tried many place, since i could get any solution.
I have no choice then posting here.

basically, i have one delete form, where i will load the firstname from a table in access(hardcode) to listbox.
then when a user choose the first name, from list box and click delete.

the entire row related to the first name should be delete.


Please guide me. thank you

The code, i wrote so far..

Imports System.Data
Imports System.Data.OleDb
Public Class Delete
    Dim inc, MaxRows As Integer
    Dim con As New OleDb.OleDbConnection
    Dim ds As New DataSet
    Dim da As New OleDb.OleDbDataAdapter
    Dim sql As String

  


    Private Sub Delete_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
        con.ConnectionString = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=" & _
                             System.Environment.CurrentDirectory.ToString() & "\DataBase.mdb"

        con.Open()

        MsgBox("A Connection to the Database is now open")
        sql = "SELECT * From Contacts"
        da = New OleDb.OleDbDataAdapter(sql, con)
        da.Fill(ds, "DataBase")

        Me.lstNames.DataSource = ds.Tables("DataBase")
        'Me.ddlName.ValueMember = "ID"
        Me.lstNames.DisplayMember = "FirstName"

    End Sub


    Private Sub btnDelete_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnDelete.Click
        'lstNames.Items.Remove(lstNames.SelectedItem)


        Dim cb As New OleDbCommandBuilder(da)

        ds.Tables("DataBase").Rows(inc).Delete()

        MaxRows = MaxRows - 1

        inc = 0



        da.Update(ds, "DataBase")



        MessageBox.Show("Contact Deleted Succesfully")


    End Sub

    Private Sub NavRecords()
        lstNames.Text = ds.Tables
    End Sub
End Class

First, search a row using Select method of DataTable.

Dim r() As DataRow

        r = ds.Tables("Database").Select("ID=" & ddlName.SelectedValue)
        If r.Length <> 0 Then
            r(0).Delete()
        End If

    End Sub

        'lstNames.Items.Remove(lstNames.SelectedItem)

        Dim cb As New OleDbCommandBuilder(da)

         
        Dim r() As DataRow

        r = ds.Tables("Database").Select("ID=" & ddlName.SelectedValue)
        If r.Length <> 0 Then
            r(0).Delete()
        End If
        MaxRows = MaxRows - 1

        inc = 0
        da.Update(ds, "DataBase")
        MessageBox.Show("Contact Deleted Succesfully")
    End Sub

    Private Sub NavRecords()
        lstNames.Text = ds.Tables
    End Sub
End Class
Dim r() As DataRow

        r = ds.Tables("Database").Select("FirstName=" & lstNames.SelectedItem)
        If r.Length <> 0 Then
            r(0).Delete()
        End If
        MaxRows = MaxRows - 1

Operator '&' is not defined for string "FirstName=" and type 'DataRowView
