I created a vehicle maintenance program and now i want to give users the option to add multiple vehicles, which i will store vehicle type and DB location in a listview.  How do i make my database sql connection connect to the selected listview item which will have the location of the database to use?  Im defaulting the db to be stored in the same localapplication folder, but im giving the user the option to name the db and name the folder, which i handle on another method.

AppDomain.CurrentDomain.SetData("DataDirectory", Environment.GetFolderPath(Environment.SpecialFolder.LocalApplicationData))
        Dim con1 As New OleDbConnection("Provider=Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0;Data Source=|DataDirectory|\BMW Maintenance\BMWMaintenance.accdb")
