Need help accessing Stored Query

I'm a VB.net beginner.  

My project has a Data Source called On_OrderDataSet which works great.  I'm able to access objects in this data source using code like this:
Dim dtCustomer As DataTable = On_OrderDataSet.Tables("Tbl_Customers")

Open in new window

So, I added a stored parameter-ized query, named Qry_Customers, using the Add option in the .xsd file.  Screenshot shows it.  Problem is that I can't figure out how to use Qry_Customers in my code.  I'd like to do something like:
Dim dtCustomer As DataTable = On_OrderDataSet.Queries("Qry_Customers")

Open in new window

 But it doesn't work.
Screenshot of Data Sources and QueriesTableAdapaterHow do I do fill a DataTable or DataRow object using Qry_Customers?  Code would be helpful.

The QueriesTableAdapter is intended more for executing scalar queries, or performing UPDATE/INSERT/DELETE operations.

Instead you should be adding your query to the existing Tbl_CustomersTableAdapter. That will then allow you to create a GetDataBy... method, which you can use in the same way as the existing GetData() method, only you'll have the addition of being able to pass a parameter to it.

Which would then allow you to do something like:
Dim adap As New DataSet1TableAdapters.CustomerTableAdapter
Dim table As DataSet1.CustomerDataTable = adap.GetDataByLastName("smith")

Open in new window

I simply recreated the "query" using the same SQL through the Add --> Table Adapter wizard in the .xsd area.
