ADO.NET question

where in the code below should i refer my connection object to the command object?


Dim strConnect As String
        Dim cn As New SqlClient.SqlConnection()

        strConnect = "SERVER=skaleem;UID=sa;PWD=;DATABASE=BillSuppression"
        cn.ConnectionString = strConnect

        Try
            cn.Open()
            Dim cmd As New System.Data.SqlClient.SqlCommand()

            With cmd
                .CommandText() = "spbillSupp_Select_BillHdr_RecordCount"
                .CommandType() = CommandType.StoredProcedure
            End With

           
            Dim dr As SqlClient.SqlDataReader
            dr = cmd.ExecuteReader
            While dr.Read()
                System.Diagnostics.Debug.Write(dr("au_lname"))
            End While
        Catch err As Exception
            MsgBox(err.ToString)
        Finally
            If cn.State = ConnectionState.Open Then cn.Close()
        End Try

see what I have copied from the help:

Public Sub CreateMySqlCommand(myConnection As SqlConnection, _
mySelectQuery As String, myParamArray() As SqlParameter)
    Dim myCommand As New SqlCommand(mySelectQuery, myConnection)
    myCommand.CommandText = "SELECT CustomerID, CompanyName FROM Customers WHERE Country = @Country AND City = @City"
    myCommand.UpdatedRowSource = UpdateRowSource.Both
    myCommand.Parameters.Add(myParamArray)
    Dim j As Integer
    For j = 0 To myCommand.Parameters.Count - 1
       myCommand.Parameters.Add(myParamArray(j))
    Next j
    Dim myMessage As String = ""
    Dim i As Integer
    For i = 0 To myCommand.Parameters.Count - 1
        myMessage += myCommand.Parameters(i).ToString() & ControlChars.Cr
    Next i
    Console.WriteLine(myMessage)
End Sub
