I am using Visual Studio 2008 (VB2008) and trying to code a procedure which will return a record from the database using a parameter.  When I execute this code, I get a SqlException error.  I have tried a number of things from articles found here and still cannot get this to work.  

HELP?!
 
Sub ValidateUser()
 
        'get strUserName from environment
        strUserName = Environ("USERNAME")
 
        'look for strUserName in Employee Table
        Dim EmailAliasParm As New SqlParameter("@FFEmailAlias", strUserName)
 
        'EmailAliasParm.ParameterName = "@FFEmailAlias"
        'EmailAliasParm.Value = strUserName
 
        connection.ConnectionString = connectionString
        selectStatement = "SELECT * FROM Employee WHERE EmailAlias = @FFEmailAlias"
 
        Dim selectCommand As New SqlCommand(selectStatement, connection)
 
        Try
 
            connection.Open()
 
            Dim reader As SqlDataReader = selectCommand.ExecuteReader(CommandBehavior.SingleRow)
 
            If reader.Read Then
 
                intEmployeeID = reader("ID")
                intManagerID = reader("ManagerID")
                strFirstName = reader("FirstName")
                strLastName = reader("LastName")
                strEmailAlias = reader("EmailAlias")
 
            Else
 
                MsgBox("no data")
 
            End If
 
        Catch ex As SqlException
 
            Throw ex
 
        Finally
 
            connection.Close()
 
        End Try

You were almost there.

After the statement, Dim selectCommand As New SqlCommand(selectStatement, connection) add

selectCommand.parameters.Add(EmailAliasParm)
