Converting VBA Search Form Query To .NET

Hello,

Any help on this would be hugely appreciated. I'm trying to convert an Old Access Database over to VB.NET and it's been a while since using VB.NET The backend is a .MDB (for now).

I have the following code I wish to convert.. All the form items are the same - names etc... I do have an option group on both forms which I would like to still pull the case from - I'm pretty sure this is possible in .NET?

The trickier part as I'm aware of will be when the user clicks the item that populates in the listbox, how to load the form as unlike access, the textboxes do not have control sources.


Thanks so much!!!
***Code to Populate List Box On Search Form***
Dim dB As DAO.Database
Dim rS As DAO.Recordset
Dim sSQL As String
 
Set dB = CurrentDb
 
sSQL = ""
sSQL = sSQL & "SELECT [PendingClaimNum], Last, First, DatePending, Custodian, PendingID     "
sSQL = sSQL & "FROM [Pending] "
 
Select Case Me.fraCriteriaType.Value
    Case 1
        sSQL = sSQL & "WHERE [PendingClaimNum]  = '" & Me.txtClmNo & "'"
    Case 2
        If IsNull(Me.txtFirstName) Then
            sSQL = sSQL & "WHERE Last LIKE '" & Me.txtLastName & "'"
        Else
            sSQL = sSQL & "WHERE Last LIKE'" & Me.txtLastName & "' AND First LIKE '" & Me.txtFirstName & "'"
        End If
    Case 3
        sSQL = sSQL & "WHERE DatePending = '" & Me.txtDate & "'"

    'Case 6

End Select
 
sSQL = sSQL & " ORDER BY [DatePending] ASC"
 
Me.lstResults.RowSource = sSQL
If Me.lstResults.ListCount = 0 Then
    MsgBox "Your search did not find a match"
 
end if
end sub

I would love to provide help, but I don't really see a specific question.  Are you looking for a way to use ADO.NET, create form logic, form design, ...?

Okay,

Specifically I'm trying to populate a ListView with multiple columns and then have the end user be able to select a record the query pulled and have it open record in form view.... I've made a bit of progress but I'm having problems with the multiple columns in the listview - datagrid works but i can't see how the user can select a record and open it from this view.

Here is what i have for code:


 Private Sub cmdSearch_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles cmdSearch.Click

        Dim OptControlArray() As Control = {OptName, OptClaimNo, OptDate, OptCustodian}
        Dim sConnectionString, sSQL As String

        sConnectionString = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=C:\Documents and Settings\diw07\My Documents\Daily Backups\phone memo backend.mdb"
        sSQL = "SELECT PendingID, PendingClaimNum, Last, First, DatePending, Custodian, [Pending].[PendingClaimNum] & ' ' & [Pending].[Last] & ' ' & [Pending].[First] & ' ' & [Pending].[DatePending] & ' ' & [Pending].[Custodian] As Row FROM Pending WHERE Last Like '" & txtLastName.Text & "'"
        'sSQL = "SELECT PendingClaimNum, Last, First, DatePending, Custodian FROM Pending WHERE Last Like '" & txtLastName.Text & "'"


        Dim conn As New System.Data.OleDb.OleDbConnection(sConnectionString)
        Dim cmd As New System.Data.OleDb.OleDbCommand(sSQL, conn)
        Dim dr As System.Data.OleDb.OleDbDataReader
        conn.Open()
        Dim dat As OleDbDataAdapter = New OleDbDataAdapter(sSQL, conn)
        Dim dt As New DataSet()
        dat.Fill(dt, "Pending")
        lstResults.DataSource = dt.Tables("Pending").DefaultView
        lstResults.DisplayMember = "Row"
        lstResults.ValueMember = "PendingID"
        conn.Close()


    End Sub

1) ASP.NET or WinForms?

2) 1.1., 2.0, 3.5?
