I am building a simple form application that needs to access my Microsoft SQL Server (I'm running 2005 Express Edition).

Alright, I've gotten to the point where I've established the connection to my Visual Basic application now I would like to do a statement like "SELECT * FROM mydb.mytable". How do I do that and what is the best way to look at the results from that query. Code would help. Thank you for the help, I realize this is an easy question for you experts but I'd like a starting point.
