Assuming you're using SQL server;
    Public Function select(ByVal sqlQuery As String)
        Dim dataset As New DataSet
        Try
            Dim Connection As SqlConnection
            Connection = New SqlConnection(Data Source=computer\SQLEXPRESS;Initial Catalog=table;User ID=x;Password=y)
            Dim adapter As New SqlDataAdapter
            adapter.SelectCommand = New SqlCommand(sqlQuery, Connection)
            adapter.Fill(dataset, "temp")
        Catch ex As Exception
        End Try
        Return dataset
    End Function
