I am currently using the following code to search a datagrid

DsLocation.Tables("tblscanorder").DefaultView.Sort = "SalesOrder"
        BindingContext(DsLocation, "tblscanorder").Position = DsLocation.Tables("tblscanorder").DefaultView.Find(TxbSearch.Text)

The field saleorder have 9 characters, I want to be able to do the search on the last 5 only as the first 4 are always the same

Example

Sales order = SOR079377

So I want to search for 79377

     Dim i As Int32

      For i = 0 To ds.Tables("tblscanorder").DefaultView.Count - 1
         If Convert.ToString(ds.Tables("tblscanorder").DefaultView.Item(i).Item("TheColumnIndex")).EndsWith("79375") Then Exit For
      Next

 BindingContext(DsLocation, "tblscanorder").Position = i
