well without knowing more details on your table structure and code this is kind of a vague question.

Basically you are just going to issue sql statements to return a set of customers

SELECT * FROM CUSTOMERS WHERE NAME LIKE 'Jo%'

would return customers name John Joe etc

you would then bind the result set to a grid etc and allow the user to select the customer they want, then you would instantiate a form for that customer ...

I'm ok with the SQL statement, i just want the VB.net source code, uhhmm.. i just cant figure out how the code is, just like a basic searching query.... like a text box... and a button , when i fill in the customerID in the text box, after i click on button , the result will return.

thats a pretty big change done you think ? Imports System
Imports System.Data
Imports System.Data.SqlClient

Module Module1

    Sub Main()
        Dim sConnectionString As String
        ' Modify the following code to correctly connect to your SQL Server.
        sConnectionString = "Password=StrongPassword;User ID=UserName;" & _

        ' Create an instance of a DataAdapter.
        Dim daAuthors As _
            New SqlDataAdapter("Select * From Authors", objConn)

        ' Create an instance of a DataSet, and retrieve data from the Authors table.
        Dim dsPubs As New DataSet("Pubs")
        daAuthors.FillSchema(dsPubs, SchemaType.Source, "Authors")

        Dim dv As DataView = New DataView(tblAuthors)

        Dim i As Integer
        Dim msg As String = "Found " & dv.Count & " records named George "

        Next
        MessageBox.Show(Msg & " ids are " & ids)

        'Pass that new object into the Add method of the DataTable.Rows collection.

is an example of a quick search (can return multiple records) but I would take a look at the datagrid example for displaying your results.
