I have a local database, and already connect to it and display records in a list box

                  String strConn = ConfigurationSettings.AppSettings["TESTDMS"];
                  String compSql = "SELECT DISTINCT companyname from company ORDER BY companyname";
                  SqlConnection oConn = new SqlConnection(strConn);

                  SqlCommand oCmd = new SqlCommand(compSql, oConn);

                  oConn.Open();
                  companyLB.DataSource = oCmd.ExecuteReader(); // companyLB is a listbox
                  companyLB.DataTextField = "companyname";
                  companyLB.DataValueField = "companyname";
                  companyLB.DataBind();
                  oConn.Close();

I have another table, investEvent, and I want to provide a way of browsing this table, READ-ONLY, with '<<', '<', '>', '>>' buttons. Updating, deleting, and inserting is NOT necessary. I am a little confused by the many data controls and am not sure the simplest, cleanest way to do this. Can I get some suggestions, pointer to articles? Thanks
