hello,
I have a database application, I used sqlconnection, sqldataadapter and dataset. I have all the functions (update,delete,insert) but I want to have a textbox to search for records based on the textbox string eg. if the textbox has  an "s" to display the records of the cities which start with "s" (cities is a record field)

You can use a SqlDataReader and use a correct T-SQL command.
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.data.sqlclient.sqldatareader.aspx 
Somehting like:
 "SELECT * FROM myTable WHERE [Field1] LIKE '" & Me.TextBox1.TexT & "%'"

SQL Syntax:

"SELECT * FROM TableName WHERE city LIKE ' %S'

@tapanpattanaik,
That is for something that ends with "S", not starts!

sorry to kyriakos70 and jpaulino,
     
                             I have mention the "%" mark in wrong location

correct location:

SQL Syntax:

"SELECT * FROM TableName WHERE city LIKE ' S %'

Yes but I have created a dataadapter with this parameter ' SELECT     id, aa, DIAKRITIKO, date_fortosis, num_autokinitou, topos_fortosis, topos_proorismou, apostoleas, receiver, entoleas, parastatiko_apostolea, product,
                      litres, kilos, net_value, base_flag, center_pump, various_expenses, FPA, tolls, General_sum, comments, payer, payer_id
FROM         Taxinomisi_fortotikon
WHERE     (aa LIKE @aaa + '%') '
How can I add the text box to this statment?

Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
        Form2.SqlDataAdapter2.Fill(Form2.DataSet21)
End Sub

' SELECT     id, aa, DIAKRITIKO, date_fortosis, num_autokinitou, topos_fortosis, topos_proorismou, apostoleas, receiver, entoleas, parastatiko_apostolea, product,
                      litres, kilos, net_value, base_flag, center_pump, various_expenses, FPA, tolls, General_sum, comments, payer, payer_id
FROM         Taxinomisi_fortotikon

I have inserted this :
Try
TextBox1.Text = Form2.SqlDataAdapter2.SelectCommand.Parameters.Item(0).Value
Form2.SqlDataAdapter2.Fill(Form2.DataSet21)
...
and get this error
parametrized query (@aaa int) needs value ... expects parameter which was not supplied

and the sql string : ..... FROM  Taxinomisi_fortotikon
WHERE  (aa LIKE @aaa) <changed to this

If you will use parameters you define the parameter later, if you do that in the string you can do:
WHERE    (aa LIKE '" &  me.textbox1.text & "%')

Hello,
Not found all, it worked after I have changed to :
Try
Form2.SqlDataAdapter2.SelectCommand.Parameters.Item(0).Value = TextBox1.Text
Form2.SqlDataAdapter2.Fill(Form2.DataSet21)

But I want to have multiple parameters in the sql stament and choose in what parameter to give a value

SELECT     id, aa, DIAKRITIKO, date_fortosis, num_autokinitou, topos_fortosis, topos_proorismou, apostoleas, receiver, entoleas, parastatiko_apostolea, product,
                      litres, kilos, net_value, base_flag, center_pump, various_expenses, FPA, tolls, General_sum, comments, payer, payer_id
FROM         Taxinomisi_fortotikon
WHERE     (aa LIKE @aad) OR
                      (DIAKRITIKO LIKE @diak) OR
                      (date_fortosis LIKE @date) OR
                      (num_autokinitou LIKE @num + '%') OR
                      (topos_fortosis LIKE @toposf + '%') OR
                      (topos_proorismou LIKE @toposp + '%') OR
                      (apostoleas LIKE @apost + '%') OR
                      (receiver LIKE @reiceiv + '%') OR
                      (entoleas LIKE @entolea + '%') OR
                      (parastatiko_apostolea LIKE @parast_ap + '%') OR
                      (product LIKE @produc + '%') OR
                      (litres LIKE @litr) OR
                      (kilos LIKE @kil) OR
                      (net_value LIKE @netv) OR
                      (base_flag LIKE @basef) OR
                      (center_pump LIKE @centerp) OR
                      (various_expenses LIKE @varexp) OR
                      (FPA LIKE @fpa) OR
                      (tolls LIKE @toll) OR
                      (General_sum LIKE @gens) OR
                      (comments LIKE @comm + '%') OR
                      (payer LIKE @paye + '%')
when I give a value to parameter num(2)(@date) it keeps telling me that needs a value for parameter num(0) (@aad)
how can I have multiple parameters and give only to one value to return me the record(s) :
eg. Form2.SqlDataAdapter2.SelectCommand.Parameters.Item(2).Value = TextBox1.Text
Form2.SqlDataAdapter2.Fill(Form2.DataSet21)

You use:
Form2.SqlDataAdapter2.SelectCommand.Parameters.Add("@parametername", parameterType).Value = TextBox1.Text

You add the operator in the SQL command and you pass only the parameter.

here is the code of the commandtext of the select command but it is always returns the original commandtext, how can I change it at runtime or how can I use the sqldatareader and show the results to a dbgrid?
code below doesn' work
Select Case ComboBox1.Items.Count

            Case 0              Form2.SqlDataAdapter2.SelectCommand.CommandText = "SELECT * FROM Taxinomisi_fortotikon WHERE aa LIKE @aad"

                Form2.SqlDataAdapter2.SelectCommand.Parameters.Item(0).Value = TextBox1.Text

            Case 1

                Form2.SqlDataAdapter2.SelectCommand.CommandText = "SELECT * FROM Taxinomisi_fortotikon WHERE DIAKRITIKO LIKE @diak"

                Form2.SqlDataAdapter2.SelectCommand.Parameters.Item(0).Value = TextBox1.Text
