The simplest method is

  • connect to the database
  • select records from one or more tables (query)
  • copy the data from the retrieved records into a display control

The type of interface you use will depend on the type of database. For example, if you are using a SQL database then you can use SqlClient (preferred). If some other source such as Access, Oracle, etc. you could use OleDB. Examples of both can be found here
