Filling a dataset from an Access database using OLEDB.OLEDBConnection

I am attempting to fill a table "Employee" in dataset "dsHold" from a access database. When the code is run the following error is received "No value given for one or more required parameters. Microsoft JET Database Engine". Any help in understanding what the parameter is that is missing would be greatly appreciated.

Code: VB.Net (2003)
Try 'try is the beginning of the error handler
            'define the connection string to the local Access database
            conn2 = New System.Data.OleDb.OleDbConnection
            conn2.ConnectionString = ("Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data source=C:\IT\Applications\DOA Application\Data\Tables.mdb")

           'open the connection to the Access database
            conn2.Open()
           
            'run a query against the database (table tblEmployee) attempting to match what was typed into the username box to the user name in the database table
            daEmployee2 = New OleDb.OleDbDataAdapter("SELECT * FROM tblEmployee WHERE UserName = " & CStr(Username), conn2)

            'now fill the data set "dsHold" table Employee with the record from the query above
  failure point===>          daEmployee2.Fill(dsHold, "Employee")
           
            'set the data adapter to nothing
            daEmployee2 = Nothing
           
            'close the connection to the Access database
            conn2.Close()

Catch eException As Exception
            If conn2.State = ConnectionState.Open Then
                conn2.Close()
            End If
            MsgBox("Error: " & eException.Message & " " & eException.Source)
        End Try

Thanks, MT

I think the problem is related to your query:

daEmployee2 = New OleDb.OleDbDataAdapter("SELECT * FROM tblEmployee WHERE UserName = " & CStr(Username), conn2)

String parameters must be enclosed in single quotes.  Try this instead:

daEmployee2 = New OleDb.OleDbDataAdapter("SELECT * FROM tblEmployee WHERE UserName = '" & CStr(Username) & "'", conn2)

So for example, if my username was "Jeff", the query would like like this:

SELECT * FROM tblEmployee WHERE UserName = 'Jeff'

why not just add all your tables into one listbox and when you run your program you can select your table employee or any other table using the same code, which then displays it in the Datagrid. If you need help with this I can send you the code.

Thanks again,
