Unless you are using more than one DataTable, you don't need a DataSet, you can just work with a DataTable.  If you are using a DataAdapter you do not need explicitly to open the Connection: the DataAdapter opens and closes it automatically.  But if you are going explicitly to .Open a Connection, you should always .Close it, too.  Unless you are using a strongly typed dataset (i.e. one which is defined at design time) you should put your databinding after, not before, you fill your table.  Otherwise, as the error message says, the binding will not be able to find the table/field it is referred to: it won't yet exist.  

Rolling all that together (and assuming that your table has a field called "lname") try this.

Dim cn As OleDbConnection = New OleDbConnection("provider=microsoft.jet.oledb.4.0; _
data  source=d:\db1.mdb")
Dim da As OleDbDataAdapter = New OleDbDataAdapter _("select * from table1 where fname='hossein'", cn)
Dim dt As New DataTable
da.Fill(dt)
TextBox1.DataBindings.Add("text", dt, "lname")

I think this is the problem

Dim cn As OleDbConnection = New OleDbConnection("provider=microsoft.jet.oledb.4.0; _
data  source=d:\db1.mdb")

I just copied and pasted it as it stood.  There are TWO spaces, not one, between 'data' and 'source'.  

Here it is corrected, and on one line.  I've just tested it (although with a different data source) and it works OK for me

        Dim cn As OleDbConnection = New OleDbConnection("provider=microsoft.jet.oledb.4.0; data source=c:\test\test.mdb")

Copy and paste that, and substitute your d:\db1.mdb for my c:\test\test.mdb
