I have a datagridview that users edit and when the Save button is pressed I want the data from the datagridview to be saved back to the database.  Whenever I press the Save button my application crashes and I get the following error message:

System execution failure
System.InvalidOperationException: Update requires a valid UpdateCommand when passed DataRow collection with modified rows.
at System.Data.Common.DbDataAdapter.UpdatedRowStatusErrors(RowUpdatedEventArgs rowUpdatedEvent, BatchCommandInfo[] batchCommands, Int32 commandCount)

Any ideas on why I'm getting this error?  An update command is defined in my code but not shown in the code snippet.  I've been stuck on this for a couple of days now so any help is appreciated and thank you in advance.

Private dap As New System.Data.OleDb.OleDbDataAdapter()
    Private es As New System.Data.DataSet()
    Private cmd As New System.Data.OleDb.OleDbCommand()
    Private bindingSource1 As New BindingSource()
    Private db As dbConnect = dbConnect.GetInstance()
    Private tblName As String
    Private sortColumn As String
    Private Sub frm_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
    End Sub
    Sub displayGrid()
            With gridView
                .ReadOnly = False
                .DataSource = eView(txtPartNo.Text).Tables(tblECO)
                .EditMode = DataGridViewEditMode.EditOnEnter
                .SelectionMode = DataGridViewSelectionMode.FullRowSelect
            End With
        End If
    End Sub
    Public Function eView(ByVal itemStr As String) As System.Data.DataSet
        cmd.CommandText = "Select * " + _
          " From " + tblName + _
          " WHERE " + partNo + _
          " LIKE '%" + itemStr + "%'" + _
          " Order by " + partNo
        dap = New OleDb.OleDbDataAdapter(cmd.CommandText, db.Connection)
        dap.TableMappings.Add("Table", tblName)
        dap.Fill(es, tblName)
        Return es
    End Function
    Public Sub saveGridChanges()
    End Sub
