 Private Sub DateTimePicker1_ValueChanged(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles DateTimePicker1.ValueChanged
       
Dim Date_active As Date = DateTimePicker1.Value

        MembersTableAdapter.Fill(DsDataset.Clients, _

Are you sure that you have equal records? I mean down to the seconds? You could be comparing March 18, 2011 10:00:00 to March 18, 2011 10:00:01 and all you are seeing is March 18, 2011.

no the dates in the table are like 2/14/2011 not time
so I put  2/14/2011  in my datetimepicker (which is set to short)
and as stated before it display all records  > 2/14/2011   but not = 2/14/2011

i suggest you to put a format to the date in your sql statement
different database handles date format differently.

for Sql Server it will look like this:
SELECT ID, LN, FN,  Date_active FROM Clients where Convert(varchar,Date_Active,103) >= ?

'103' is DD/MM/YYYY format, you can use other date formatting that you desired.

its the default date format that the database handles which you can change the default date setting based on what database you are using. another solution is to set a date format in your sql query as I suggested.

try DATEVALUE to truncate the time part.
SELECT ID, LN, FN,  Date_active FROM Clients
WHERE DATEVALUE(Date_active) >=   ?
ORDER BY  LN
