I can run the following statement in Query Analyzer and get the result I am looking for.  However, when I run it in VB.NET, I get no results.  Why?

SELECT STR_NAM From LocID Where STR_NAM like '%ROAD%'
Public Shared Function GetLocs() As DataSet
 
        ' Return set of locations based on search criterion entered on LocInqScreen
 
        ' Create a connection to the Mobile SQL database
        Dim PAConnection As New SqlCeConnection
        PAConnection.ConnectionString = "Data Source =""Program Files\HTE_Apps\CT Database.sdf"""
 
        ' Define a Query and Adapter to select this screen's controls from the database
 
        'Define select string
        Dim SelectLocs As String = "SELECT STR_DIR as DIR, STR_NUM as NUM, STR_NAM as STREET, STR_SFX as SFX, CITY, STATE, ZIP, LOC_ID From LocID Where"
 
        'Define select string for each search criteria entered
 
        'Street Name
        If LocInqScreen.gSTR_NAM > "" Then
            SelectLocs = Trim(SelectLocs) + " STR_NAM like '%" + Trim(LocInqScreen.gSTR_NAM.ToString) + "%' "
        End If
 
        Dim adapter As SqlCeDataAdapter = New SqlCeDataAdapter(SelectLocs, PAConnection)
 
        ' Initiate a Dataset to contain the table returned
        Dim result As New DataSet
 
        'Fill the dataset
        PAConnection.Open()
        adapter.Fill(result, "LocID")
        PAConnection.Close()
 
        ' Return the dataset
        Return result
 
    End Function
