Assuming you know how to execute a command:


Dim dr as SqlDataReader = cmd.ExecuteReader()
Dim value as String

if dr.HasRows then
       dr.Read()
       value = dr("NameOfSEcondColumn)
else
    value = "No Rows!"
end if


Note that you could also change the select statement to retrieve just the one value . . . then the code would be:

Dim value as string = cmd.ExecuteScalar()
0
