 Dim StrCommand As String = String.Format("select * from logmein where userID =  '{0}' ", userID)

If you look up String.Format, it is a shared member of the String class that takes a variable number of arguments {0}, {1}, ..., {n} and replaces them in the string.  It is a much cleaner way of building a formatted string, given certain inputs, versus using string concatenation (userID = '" & userID & "'").  Each of the arguments gets replaced in the string, so userID = 0.  

Another example:

  Dim test As String = String.Format("Item #1 = {0}, Item #2 = '{1}', Item #3 = {2}", item1, item2, item3)
