I am not sure how to delete all of the records that appear in the DataGridView at one time.  I do want them to be deleted from the table and the database.

The following code works for me in asp.net vb.net :

  Sub Delete_Grid(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As DataGridCommandEventArgs)
        dgEmps.EditItemIndex = e.Item.ItemIndex
      '  Dim TheID As String
      '  TheID = e.Item.Cells(2).Text
        Dim DBConn As SqlConnection
        Dim DBdelete As New SqlCommand
        DBConn = New SqlConnection(strConnection)
        DBdelete.CommandText = "delete from Employee " 
       '     & "Where ID = " & TheID
        DBdelete.Connection = DBConn
        DBdelete.Connection.Open()
        DBdelete.ExecuteNonQuery()
        DBConn.Close()
        dgEmps.EditItemIndex = -1
        BuildDataList()
    End Sub

I should have been more specific (for sure!):  I want to delete all of the data from a SqlServer DB.  I want to do this when a user clicks a button.

OK, that looks pretty much like what I need.  Can you tell me what  BuildDataList()  does?

@ ljcor:
 BuildDataList() is another call which populates datagrid like as under :

Sub BuildDataList ()
        Dim DBConn As MySqlConnection
        Dim DBCommand As MySqlDataAdapter
        Dim DSPageData as New DataSet
        DBConn = New SqlConnection(strConnection)
        DBCommand = New SqlDataAdapter ("Select * From Employee " & "Order By LastName,_ firstName",  DBConn)
        DBCommand.Fill(DSPageData, "Employee")
        dgEmps.DataSource = DSPageData.Tables("Employee").DefaultView
        dgEmps.DataBind()
End Sub

Thanks for the points.

Thanks for that additional info.  It does cause me to ask one more question: Does that function fetch ALL fields in the table or ONLY those displayed in the grid?  I assume the latter but I didn't know such a function even existed.

Or is this a function you created and not a system function?  I ask because I cannot find any reference to anything by that name in the reference sources.

Builddatalist is not a system function, its a you can say a function/class or procedure designed by me in our asp.net page to retrieve all data from employee table. You can see sql used in following line
DBCommand = New SqlDataAdapter ("Select * From Employee " & "Order By LastName,_ firstName",  DBConn)
is extracting all fields and all data from employee table. You can put sql a/c to your req. i mean your desired field/data aswell.
You can change like this :
DBCommand = New SqlDataAdapter ("Select field1,field2 From Employee where your creatary", DBConn)
