And subsequently I want to Design the select query by adding the three column i.e. First Name, Middle Name and Last Name in the Listbox and by selecting the list item that will show in text box.


Thanks in advance for helping me.

Edited 6 Years Ago by __avd: Added [code] tags. For easy readability, always wrap programming code within posts in [code] (code blocks).

It on the following line while retrieve data from database line

strSQL = ("Select * from [Lani] Where [Sr No] = " & txtid.Text)

I will appreciate your reply,

Thank you

Can you post error message description?

If field type of [Sr No] is number then use,

IF IsNumeric(txtId.Text) Then
  strSQL = "Select * from [Lani] where [Sr No]=" & txtid.Text
  ....
End If

If field type if text/varchar (non-numeric) then use,

strSQL = "Select * from [Lani] where [Sr No]='" & txtid.Text & "'"

PS: Try to use/learn parametrized queries or stored procedure.

Sir, Further it will show me an error on the following line
I have use Isnumeric method
cmd = New OleDbCommand(strSQL, con)
Command text was not set for the command object.

If you kind help me for that please,

Thank you

IF IsNumeric(txtId.Text) Then
  strSQL = "Select * from [Lani] where [Sr No]=" & txtid.Text
  
  con = New OleDbConnection(connectionString)
  con.Open()

  dr = cmd.ExecuteReader()

  If dr.Read() Then

I think you want to fetch a row when an item from listbox is selected/

...
 IF  Not IsNothing(ListBox1.SelectedValue) Then
  strSQL = "Select * from [Lani] where [Sr No]=" & ListBox1.SelectedValue
  
  con = New OleDbConnection(connectionString)
  con.Open()

  cmd = New OleDbCommand(strSQL, con)
  dr = cmd.ExecuteReader()

  If dr.Read() Then
     ' Populate form with the data in textbox
      txtid.Text = dr.Item("Sr No").ToString()
      txtfirst.Text = dr.Item("First Name").ToString()
      txtmiddle.Text = dr.Item("Middle Name").ToString()
      txtlast.Text = dr.Item("Last Name").ToString()
