Here's the first part of my code:
Private Sub frmCust_Load(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load

        Dim oledbDA As System.Data.OleDb.OleDbDataAdapter
        Dim oleFillComm As System.Data.OleDb.OleDbCommand
        Dim oleUpdComm As System.Data.OleDb.OleDbCommand
        Dim oleDS As DataSet
        Dim oleBS As BindingSource

        oleFillComm = New System.Data.OleDb.OleDbCommand
        oleUpdComm = New System.Data.OleDb.OleDbCommand
        oleDS = New DataSet

        oleconn = New System.Data.OleDb.OleDbConnection
        oledbDA = New System.Data.OleDb.OleDbDataAdapter
        oleconn.ConnectionString = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;" & _
            "Data Source=C:\ShopHand\ShopHand\ShopHand\slspro.mdb;" & _
            "Persist Security Info=True"

        oleFillComm.Connection = oleconn
        oleFillComm.CommandText = "SELECT         LastName, FirstName, MiddleInitial, Address1, Address2, City, State, Zip, " & _
        "WorkPhone, CellPhone, HomePhone, Fax, EmailAddress, IsEmployee, Notes, PayrollDeduction, SocialSecurity, " & _
        "Deals.LocalLenderAppID, Deals.FundingStatus, Deals.FundingDate, Deals.LastWriteCount " & _ 
"FROM            ((Customers INNER JOIN " & _
                         "Stock ON Customers.CustomerID = Stock.PurchasedFrom) INNER JOIN " & _
                         "Deals ON Stock.InventoryID = Deals.VehicleSold) " & _
"ORDER BY Customers.LastName"

        oledbDA.SelectCommand = oleFillComm

        Me.DataGridView1.DataSource = oleDS.Tables(0)

    End Sub

The above code loads a "datagridview1" from a database by way of a dataset (oleDS) which works fine.

    Public Function FindCust(ByVal CustText As String) As Boolean

        Dim TypeOfForm As String = "r"
        Dim IsOpened As Boolean = False
        Dim cform As frmCust = Nothing

        Call Get_Custform(cform)

        Call SeeIfFormHasAnInstanceOpened(TypeOfForm, IsOpened)
        If IsOpened = True Then
            MessageBox.Show("Customer Form Not Opened - OPEN FORM", "Form Not Opened", MessageBoxButtons.OK)
            FindCust = False
            Return FindCust
            Exit Function
        End If

        cform.DataGridView1.SelectionMode = DataGridViewSelectionMode.FullRowSelect

        Dim intcount As Integer = 0
        Dim CellToLookIn As Integer = 0
        Dim rowindex As String = Nothing

        cform.lblTxtToFind.Visible = False
        If IsNothing(cform.cboFind.SelectedItem) Then
            If cform.cboFind.SelectedItem = "Last Name" Then
                CellToLookIn = 0
                CellToLookIn = 15
            End If
        End If

        cform.DataGridView1.AllowUserToAddRows = False
        For Each row As DataGridViewRow In cform.DataGridView1.Rows
            If cform.DataGridView1.Rows(intcount).Cells(CellToLookIn).Value.ToString = CustText Then
                cform.DataGridView1.Rows(intcount).Selected = True
                FindCust = True
                Exit Function
            End If
            intcount = intcount + 1
        cform.DataGridView1.AllowUserToAddRows = True
        FindCust = False
        Return FindCust
    End Function

Open in new window

the above code is a procedure getting called when the customer searches the data for a "Last Name" or "VIN" of a dataset record
which also works fine - I guess my ? is - When the data is  found I need a way for the screen to go to the (SELECTED RECORD) like a bindingsource so I can call the .MOVENEXT method as the code loops through the data and I don't know now to make a binding source in code! Could someone help me?

I found the answer:

Dim TargetRow as integer = 0
TargetRow = cform.DataGridView1.SelectedRows(0).Index
                cform.DataGridView1.FirstDisplayedScrollingRowIndex = TargetRow
