I need some help getting started.  I created a connection to a Access DataBase, I was able to import the Data onto a DataGrid Easily.  Now I have to make a search that will search for names, ID's and such... One problem i have is that the Table Field names are   "Customer ID" or "Contact Name" which have spaces in them.  How do I handle those?

My options that I see are either the DataView or use a OleDBCommand what are the syntax for using those? so i can filter out the ones I do not need.  I also want to be able to use WildCards to search partial properties.

I'm not looking for a full solution really just some help to get started or Links to websites where i can read up on it

SQL Statement should be

Suppose you are searching by "Customer ID"
-------------------------------------------------
Select [Customer ID], [Contact Name]
FROM TableName
WHERE ( [Customer ID] = ? )

"?" will work as the parameter from the forms field.

That code will probilby work for SQL and ASP Pages.  But I am looking for a Strictly VB.NET Application.  I did try it that way, but it didn't do anything.

Me.CustomerData.Clear()

Me.OleDbDataAdapter1.SelectCommand.CommandText = "SELECT [Customer ID], [Customer Name], [Contact Title], [Contact First Name], [Contact Last Name], [Contact Position], [E-mail], Phone FROM [Customer] where [Customer Name] Like '%" & TextBox1.Text & "%'"

Me.OleDbDataAdapter1.Fill(CustomerData)

Me.DataGrid1.Refresh()

CustomerData being the DataSet
