TableAdapter won't update

I have a VB.Net 4.0 project in VS 2010
I have a data connection using the Database Explorer, connecting to an Access 2003 database
I have a query or "View" I added as a datagrid to my form.  The query contains a join.
I have two problems:

First issue:
Originally the BindingNavigator that also was added to the form, had the "save" feature disabled.  I then enabled it, and added the following code:

Private Sub NoBannersBindingNavigatorSaveItem_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs)
End Sub

This code never triggers when the button is clicked.  The code is inside the Form.vb module.  How do you properly reference this button?

Second issue
To get around the button problem, I just added a button to the form and put the update code in that, but my table adapter update method triggers an error

Private Sub Button3_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs)Handles Button3.Click
        'Save grid edits
        Me.TableAdapterManager.UpdateAll(Me.AutomationDataSet) 'Error line
End Sub

TableAdapterManager contains no connection information. Set each TableAdapterManager TableAdapter property to a valid TableAdapter instance.

Another work around would be how to issue a SQL update command like DoCmd.runSQL for VB.net 4.0?  Do I need to add a reference, or what is the 4.0 syntax?

Thanks in advance!

First Issue,
You need to add Handles clause to the sub.

Second Issue,
You need to initialize the manager. Problem is that your Select query has a join so the adapter does not generate update, delete, insert statements. You have to create those manually.

Here is the finished code.  I couldn't figure out how to make use of SqlConnection, so I redid it as an OleDb connection.  Thanks again!

 Private Sub NoBannersBindingNavigatorSaveItem_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles NoBannersBindingNavigatorSaveItem.Click

        Dim connetionString As String
        Dim connection As OleDbConnection
        Dim oledbAdapter As New OleDbDataAdapter
        Dim sql As String
        connetionString = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=""C:\data.mdb"""
        connection = New OleDbConnection(connetionString)
        sql = "UPDATE NoBanners SET NoBanners.Location = " _
            & Chr(34) & "Updated Field" & Chr(34) & " WHERE (((NoBanners.FileName)=" & Chr(34) & "File.jpg" & _
            Chr(34) & ") AND ((NoBanners.Field)=" & Chr(34) & "Date" & Chr(34) & "));"
            oledbAdapter.UpdateCommand = connection.CreateCommand
            oledbAdapter.UpdateCommand.CommandText = sql
            MsgBox("Row(s) Updated !! ")
        Catch ex As Exception
        End Try
    End Sub
