I am pulling back data from a SQL server and building a table with it. From there I am applying a filter to look for a specific row in that table. After this how do I assign data to a variable? If I have the IndexID I need the SwitchName.

            command = conn.CreateCommand()
            command.CommandText = "Select IndexID, SwitchNameIndex from Network_NameIndex"
            rs = command.ExecuteReader


            Dim dsData As New Data.DataSet
            Dim SwitchNameIndex As New Data.DataTable
            With SwitchNameIndex.Columns
                .Add(New DataColumn("IndexID"))
                .Add(New DataColumn("SwitchNameIndex"))
            End With
            dsData.Tables.Add(SwitchNameIndex)

            While rs.Read()

                If Not IsDBNull(rs("IndexID")) Then
                    NameIndex = rs("IndexID")
                End If
                If Not IsDBNull(rs("SwitchNameIndex")) Then
                    SwitchName = rs("SwitchNameIndex")
                End If

                Dim row As DataRow = SwitchNameIndex.NewRow()
                row(0) = NameIndex
                row(1) = SwitchName
                SwitchNameIndex.Rows.Add(row)
            End While

            Dim DataView As DataView = New DataView(SwitchNameIndex)
            DataView.RowFilter = "IndexID = '1'"

you should just use:
dim dr() as datarow=SwitchNameIndex.select("indexid='1'")
your information will be contained in dr(0)("fieldname")
