Just starting out in VB.Net

I am just switching from vb6 to vb.net.  I know, I'm way behind the curve.  I could really use some basic help on making a connection to an Access database and filling a form with a recordset.  VB.Net probably doesn't do it anything like VB6.

I will post my vb6 code to make clear what I am trying to achieve and would greatly appreciate the .net equivalent to the snippet.

Thanks in advance for any help
Public cn As New ADODB.Connection   
Dim strOpen as String
Dim rs As New ADODB.Recordset
 
strOpen = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=" & strDest
 
cn.Open strOpen 'open db connection object with connection string set above
 
 rs.Open "Select * from tbluser", cn, adOpenKeyset, adLockOptimistic
 Do While Not rs.EOF
    cboUserID.AddItem (rs.Fields("user_id") & ", " & rs.Fields("last_name") & ", " & rs.Fields("first_name"))
    rs.MoveNext
 Loop
 rs.Close

Hi,

You can read this PAQ it has some examples how to handle SQL databases http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Languages/.NET/Visual_Basic.NET/Q_23349839.html

You just have to change the Sql to Oledb classes (ex. SqlConnection will be OleDbConnection)

Also you can look examples in MSDN:
