Finding controls in Formview Insert Template

I am using VS 2008 VB.net and SQL 2005.

I have a formview on an aspx page and I have completed the Insert Template.

On the insert template I have a drop-down list for the Customer# and the Customer Address fields below that. My goal is that when the user selects the Customer# in the dropdown list the address fields are filled in.

My Problem is that I can not figure out how to address the textbox fields in the formview Insert template.

This is what I am trying....
    Protected Sub DropDownList2_SelectedIndexChanged1(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs)
        Dim addr2 = CType(sender, DropDownList).SelectedValue

        Dim connectionString As String = "Data Source=bodb1;Initial Catalog=Depot;Persist Security Info=True;User ID=webuser;Password=password"
        Dim dbcon As New SqlConnection(connectionString)
        dbcon.Open()
        Dim dbcmd As New SqlCommand
        dbcmd.CommandText = "select address from les01 where cshipno like 'addr2'"
        dbcmd.Connection = dbcon

        CType(FormView1.FindControl("AddressTextBox"), TextBox) = dbcmd.ExecuteScalar

        dbcmd.Dispose()
        dbcon.Dispose()
   
    End Sub


This Line
 CType(FormView1.FindControl("AddressTextBox"), TextBox) = dbcmd.ExecuteScalar

Gives the error "expression is a value and therefore cannot be the target of an assignment."
