  • Hello,

    Here is a basic pattern, note the square brackets around the field date as I believe is this a reserve token. Also note the use of a parameter for the WHERE condition value, you should never use string concatenation as this can lead to a) unescapted apostrophes b) sql injection.

        Public Function Demo(pSearchValue As string) As Boolean
            Using cn As New OleDbConnection With {.ConnectionString = "TODO"}
                Using cmd As New OleDbCommand With {.Connection = cn}
                    cmd.CommandText = "SELECT [date] FROM SomeTable WHERE [Date] = ?"
                    Dim reader = cmd.ExecuteReader()
                    Return reader.HasRows
                End Using
            End Using
        End Function

  • If you want to read more than one row you need call the Read method again:

            While dr.Read
                'Columns in each Row
            End While

  • Hi ben10chia,

    You can use OleDbDatareader OleDbDataReader.Read Method () to do this, like this:

     Dim connectionString As String = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=" & "c:\Data\Northwind.mdb;User Id=admin;Password=;"
            Dim queryString As String = "SELECT ProductID, UnitPrice, ProductName from products " & "WHERE UnitPrice > ? " & "ORDER BY UnitPrice DESC;"
            Dim paramValue As Integer = 5
            Using connection As New OleDbConnection(connectionString)
                Dim command As New OleDbCommand(queryString, connection)
                command.Parameters.AddWithValue("@pricePoint", paramValue)
                    Dim reader As OleDbDataReader = command.ExecuteReader()
                    While reader.Read()
                        Console.WriteLine(vbTab & "{0}" & vbTab & "{1}" & vbTab & "{2}", reader(0), reader(1), reader(2))
                    End While
                Catch ex As Exception
                End Try
            End Using

  • Cherry, 

    What is this bad converted C# into .Net VB.

    In .Net VB the Shared Sub is a module and VB knows since version 7.1 the statement 

     Using connection As  New OleDbConnection(connectionString)

    Just to let you know
