I am using the following code (which works) to return all records, but I can't get it to work without selecting each field individually. I would like to know the syntax to retrieve all fields, because some tables will have a lot of them.

        Try
            Dim db As New DataContext("C:\Grow.mdf")
            Dim Strains As Table(Of Strain) = db.GetTable(Of Strain)()
            Dim q = From objStrain In Strains Select objStrain.StrainID, objStrain.Code, objStrain.Name Order By Code

            If q.Count = 0 Then
                MsgBox("Nothing returned.")
                Exit Sub
            End If

            DataGridView1.DataSource = q

        Catch ex As Exception
                MsgBox(ex.Message)
        End Try

Hi  Sheryl Landis;

Just use the local variable objStrain by itself as shown below

Dim q = From objStrain In Strains Order By objStrain.Code Select objStrain
