I have a counter that is retuned to a Main form and i would like to populate a datagridvierw and a text box resulting from this counter with results from 2 tables (Customer and contact tables), how can i do this? is it possible? Currently i have a view (vwCustomersandContacts that has customer names, address and the contacts for that customer) that returns me the records that is = to counter but its causing me a headache when trying to delete a row from the datagridview so i though if i use a table instead of a view would be simplier
using (frmSearchCustomer form = new frmSearchCustomer())
            {
                if (form.ShowDialog() == DialogResult.OK)
                {
                    System.Data.SqlClient.SqlConnection cnn = new System.Data.SqlClient.SqlConnection();
                    conn = new SqlConnection(@"Data Source=<SQLInstance;Initial Catalog=<Database>;Integrated Security=True");
                    comm = new SqlCommand("SELECT * FROM vwCustomersandContacts WHERE CustomerCounter = " + form.Counter + "");
                    da = new SqlDataAdapter();
                    ds = new DataSet();
                    comm.Connection = conn;
                    da.SelectCommand = comm;
                    datagridview1.AutoGenerateColumns = false;
                    //Datagridview1 column1
                    var col1 = new DataGridViewColumn();
                    col1.DataPropertyName = "FirstName";
                    col1.Name = "First Name";
                    var cell1 = new DataGridViewTextBoxCell();
                    col1.CellTemplate = cell1;
                    datagridview1.Columns.Add(col1);
                    //Datagridview1 column2
                    var col2 = new DataGridViewColumn();
                    col2.DataPropertyName = "LastName";
                    col2.Name = "Last Name";
                    var cell2 = new DataGridViewTextBoxCell();
                    col2.CellTemplate = cell2;
                    datagridview1.Columns.Add(col2);
                    //Datagridview1 column3
                    var col3 = new DataGridViewColumn();
                    col3.DataPropertyName = "Telephone";
                    col3.Name = "Telephone";
                    var cell3 = new DataGridViewTextBoxCell();
                    col3.CellTemplate = cell3;
                    datagridview1.Columns.Add(col3);
                    //Datagridview1 column4
                    var col4 = new DataGridViewColumn();
                    col4.DataPropertyName = "Mobile";
                    col4.Name = "Mobile";
                    var cell4 = new DataGridViewTextBoxCell();
                    col4.CellTemplate = cell4;
                    datagridview1.Columns.Add(col4);
                    //Datagridview1 column5
                    var col5 = new DataGridViewColumn();
                    col5.DataPropertyName = "Department";
                    col5.Name = "Department";
                    var cell5 = new DataGridViewTextBoxCell();
                    col5.CellTemplate = cell5;
                    datagridview1.Columns.Add(col5);
                    //Datagridview1 column6
                    var col6 = new DataGridViewColumn();
                    col6.DataPropertyName = "Position";
                    col6.Name = "Position";

                    da.Fill(ds);

I noticed you datagridview1 doesn't have a DataMember

datagridview1.DataMember = "";

Here is an article that might help

A little more explanation of what is going wrong would be good.
