        Dim conn2 As New SqlConnection(strConn2)
 
        conn2.Open()
     
        Dim cmd2 As New Data.SqlClient.SqlCommand("wmItemOptionproductsSp", conn2)

I dont understand what it is you are trying to do. Do you want to use the stored procedure to fill the dataset INSTEAD of the current sql command? Or are you trying to add another table to the dataset, where the new table is the result of the stored proc call?

trying to connect through stored procedure instead of writing the query on page.  i wrote the example of a connection that i have on top as reference of what i am trying to achieve.

Ok, you dont need to open the connection cause dataAdapter does that for you. But it shouldnt hurt. So you have 90% of it. All you have to do is change this one line :
Dim ad As New SqlDataAdapter("SELECT CategoryName,Description FROM Categories", myConnection)

to the one shown below.

  Dim strConn2 As String = ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings("test").ConnectionString
        Dim conn2 As New SqlConnection(strConn2)    
        Dim cmd2 As New Data.SqlClient.SqlCommand("wmItemOptionproductsSp", conn2)
        cmd2.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure
 
        cmd2.Parameters.AddWithValue("@item", Request.QueryString("option"))
 
   Dim ad As New SqlDataAdapter(cmd2)
        Dim ds As New DataSet()
        ad.Fill(ds, "TableName")
