>>> i added the database in project

How did you add ??? you mean from menu "Data->Add New Data" Source ???
because it makes DataSet bydefault otherwise we need to go with OleDb class to work with it.

yes sir ,i added database by "Data->Add New Data" ,but instead of that want i have to do.plz guide me


One approach using LINQ:

Dim ds As New testDataSet()
Dim tblAdapt As New testDataSetTableAdapters.tblATableAdapter()
If textBox1.Text <> "" OrElse textBox1.Text <> [String].Empty Then ' if ID did not provide
	Dim query = (From d In ds.tblA Where d.ID = Convert.ToInt32(textBox1.Text)d.Text)
	For Each s As [String] In query
		Me.Text = s 'print the value where suitable.
	MessageBox.Show("Please Enter ID")
End If

You can also parse the "textBox1.Text" for must a numeric datatype. For that "Add Reference" from "Solution Explorer" and under ".Net Tab" select "Microsoft.VisualBasic", then add this line on ".vb file":
Imports Microsoft.VisualBasic

So this line:
If textBox1.Text <> "" OrElse textBox1.Text <> [String].Empty Then

will become:
If textBox1.Text <> "" OrElse textBox1.Text <> [String].Empty And Information.IsNumeric(textBox1.Text) Then

Did you get it ??? OR Still around ???
