Just add a combo box to a form and add the following code:
Private Sub Form1_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load

Dim cmdString As String = "Select * from Employees"
Dim connString As String = "user id=sa;password=;database=northwind;server=MCB"
Dim myConnection As SqlConnection = New SqlConnection(connString)

' Open connection
Dim da As SqlDataAdapter = New SqlDataAdapter(cmdString, myConnection)
Dim dataSet1 As DataSet = New DataSet()
da.Fill(dataSet1, "Employees")
Dim DataViewManager1 As DataViewManager = dataSet1.DefaultViewManager
ComboBox1.DataSource = DataViewManager1
ComboBox1.DisplayMember = "Employees.FirstName"

Catch ae As SqlException
End Try
