popluate combobox fill gridview from webservice

Create a window application to display sales for a selected store using multitier application. Allow the user to select store name from a drop down list.

Use sales and stores from the pubs database. sales table stor_id, ord_num, ord_date, qty, payterms, and title_id columns. Stores table has stor_id, stor_name, stor_address, city, state and zip columns.

Right the combobox is work. The GridView is displaying the id number I have in the sql statement. How do get it to display the results of the combobox?

Any help would be appreciated

You are gonna have to pass the ComboBox1.selectedValue to your webservice call..
e.g. combo1.data(ComboBox1.selectedValue )

make sure that that inside your webservice query the selected value ends up in your WHERE clause.
e.g.
 strSelect =  string.Format("SELECT stor_id, ord_num, ord_date, qty, payterms, title_id FROM Sales WHERE stor_id={0}", selected)

I guess I know that's what I'm supposed to do but everytime I try it, I get some kind of error message.
I added the selection variable to the webservices though the public function and added it to the sql string. I"m doing something wrong because it doesn't work. It says there's an error message after the the = in the sql statement.

Thanks

selection = ComboBox1.SelectedValue.ToString
 
    <WebMethod()> Public Function data(ByVal selection As String) As 
     
        cnstring = "Data Source=.\SQLExpress; Initial Catalog=PUBS; Integrated Security=True;"
        'strSelect = "SELECT * from Sales"
 
 
        strSelect = "SELECT stor_id, ord_num, ord_date, qty, payterms, title_id FROM Sales WHERE stor_id=selection = ComboBox1.SelectedValue.ToString" & selection & ""

Sorry made a mistake on the sql statement...

selection = ComboBox1.SelectedValue.ToString
 
    <WebMethod()> Public Function data(ByVal selection As String) As
     
        cnstring = "Data Source=.\SQLExpress; Initial Catalog=PUBS; Integrated Security=True;"
        'strSelect = "SELECT * from Sales"
 
       strSelect = "SELECT stor_id, ord_num, ord_date, qty, payterms, title_id FROM Sales WHERE stor_id=" & selection & """"

or you could copy/paste the line I put in there?

strSelect =  string.Format("SELECT stor_id, ord_num, ord_date, qty, payterms, title_id FROM Sales WHERE stor_id={0}", selected)

or when stor_id is a string:
strSelect =  string.Format("SELECT stor_id, ord_num, ord_date, qty, payterms, title_id FROM Sales WHERE stor_id='{0}' ", selected)
