  • When you construct your sql query from to an access database you have to use % symbol instead of the * symbol
    something like this

            Dim OleCmd As OleDbCommand = New OleDbCommand("SELECT O.OrderID, C.CompanyName, O.OrderDate, " & _
                                                          "O.RequiredDate, O.ShippedDate " & _
                                                          "FROM Customers AS C INNER JOIN Orders AS O " & _
                                                          "ON C.CustomerID = O.CustomerID " & _
                                                          "WHERE (((C.CompanyName) Like 'A%'))")
