VB statements to connect to SQL Express.

brosner22 asked
Last Modified: 2013-12-25
I am currently developing an application using Visual Studio Express and SQL Express. I connected an SQL Express database  to Visual Studio Express via the new connection wizard.  No problem. Now I'm trying to access tables within an SQL Express database using VB.  I can't seem to find the statements to use to do that.

I asked this question before in a different manner and I'm afraid I was misunderstood.

If possible, please share with me the statement(s) I need to insert into my VB code.

Thanks for any help you can provide.
