Hello

  Use dataView to help you to accomplish that

Here's an example to show all data from xml file in dataGrid1, and the search for a value and show the result in dataGrid2

...... Windows Form Designer generated code

    Dim ds As New DataSet

    Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
        Dim dv As New DataView(ds.Tables(0))
        dv.RowFilter = "FirstName = '" & TextBox1.Text & "'"
        DataGrid2.DataSource = dv
    End Sub

    Private Sub Form1_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
        ds.ReadXml("c:\emp.xml")
        DataGrid1.DataSource = ds.Tables(0)
    End Sub

If you would like the result to showed in the same grid, you can use the Default DataView of DataTable
as
Ds.Tables(0).DefaultView.RowFilter = ...

if you want to clear the Filter just set the RowFilter property to empty string

HTH

Hello

  I used FirstName field, you need to change it to any field you like
for example
dv.RowFilter = "FirstName '" ..
if would like to use LastName instead just change it
dv.RowFilter = "LastName '"..

Is there a way someone could help me out with my problem?  Kinda the same thing.  What I previously have had one expert help me with, has really not helped much.
