Using SQL with an Acess Db

Hi Experts,

Please look at the attached code snippet and tell me how I can assign the result of the SQL query to the integer HighScore.
Dim DbConn As OleDbConnection
Dim SQLStr As String
Dim HighScore As Integer
DbConn = New OleDbConnection("Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=db1.mdb")
DbConn.Open()
SQLStr = "SELECT TopScore FROM tblResults WHERE TeamID = 1;"
        
HighScore = ???     
DbConn.Close()

Open in new window

Try this way:
Dim DbConn As OleDbConnection
Dim SQLStr As String
Dim HighScore As Integer
DbConn = New OleDbConnection("Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=db1.mdb")
SQLStr = "SELECT TopScore FROM tblResults WHERE TeamID = 1;"
Dim command As New OleDbCommand(SQLStr, DbConn)
DbConn.Open()
HighScore = command.ExecuteScalar()
DbConn.Close()
