In my application I have a dataset which I fill on start of the application.

The dataset has two colums    "First Name"   "Last Name"

I would like to search the dataset for a name and display the name in a textbox.   Could you please tell me the easiest way to do that.
I seem to be stuck on this.

Can you use a select like :

Dim DataRows() As DataRow = dsPupilRecords.Tables(0).Select("[First Name]='Ben' AND [Last Name]='Sherman'")
