Hello,

I need a way to change the SQL statement that is being applied to the DataGridView but I am not sure how to go about it. Do I need to apply it to the Table Adapter, the Binding Source or the Dataset?

What I want to do is have a combo box, text field and a button to apply filtering of the data on the fly. The operator will select from the combo box which field to search, then enter the search term and press the button to apply it.

Thanks

It sounds like you should use the .Filter property of the BindingSource.  It takes a String, which you could build "on the fly" on these lines

   Dim FilterString As String = <fieldnameselectedfromcombo> & " = '" & <textfromtextbox> & "'"
   MyBindingSource.Filter = FilterString

It ssems when I apply the filter, nothing changes. Do I need to refresh something to cause the DataGridView to update?

Nevermind, I was trying to asign the code to an unused button. It did work. Thanks!
