MySQL connector namespace error in Visual Studio 2003

I'm totaly new to .Net but have done a course and have a book. Installed the MySQL .net Connector and have Visual Studio 2003 running on my computer.

I know I need an import statement to get the MySQL connector to work and have added the text below but just get a squiggley line underneath and a namespace not found error message.

Imports System.Data.Odbc
Imports MySql.Data.MySqlClient

Public Class WebForm2
    Inherits System.Web.UI.Page

    Private Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
        'Put user code to initialize the page here
        Dim myconstring = New mysqlconnection("Database=log;Data Source=;User Id=root")
        Dim MyConnection As New OdbcConnection(MyConString)
    End Sub

End Class

So what have I done wrong?

You should also add a reference to the mysql assembly in your project.

Now I feel like a complete numpty.

That worked fine. For the record and people searching this in the future I should note there are samples in the install directory of the MySQL connector.
