Private Sub btnDelete_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnDelete.Click
 If CBAccountNumber.SelectedIndex = -1 Then
            Return 'nothing selected
        End If

        Dim result As MsgBoxResult = MsgBox("Are you sure you want to Delete Selected Account?", MsgBoxStyle.Exclamation + MsgBoxStyle.YesNo, "Yes or No")

        If result = MsgBoxResult.No Then
            Return
        End If



        Dim account_number As String = CBAccountNumber.SelectedItem.ToString

        If Not IsNumeric(account_number) Then
            MsgBox("wrong format") 'selected item is not a number
            Return
        End If

        Dim query As String = "DELETE FROM customer WHERE account_number=" & account_number
         'assuming you have mysql connection function already...
        Dim cmd As New SqlCommand(query, myConnection)
        cmd.ExecuteNonQuery()
        myConnection.Close()
End Sub

Thanks but it didn't exactly work...I'm deleteing an account from MySQLdatabase (already loaded) using combobox to select the account number, then refresh the datagrid on main page...

Thanks I tried that but for some reson it still won't work

then try putting in a breakpoint and check that the account_number contains the correct value when you try to use it
