Introduction

This article and sample covers that "How to Insert, Update, Delete and Search Values to/from MS Access database 2003 with VB.NET 2005", Although VB.NET 2005 gives lot more methodologies to do this same job but I find this more easier, simplest and understandable for a beginner.

Background

Learner must have little bit programming experience of VB.NET 2005 and MS Access 2003

Using the Code

Follow the steps:

  1. Create a VB.NET 2005 Windows Project,
  2. Place 3 Labels on form.
  3. Place 3 TextBoxes, Rename them txtAu_ID, txtAuthor, txtSearchResult
  4. Place 4 Buttons, Rename them btnInsert, btnUpdate, btnDelet, btnSearch
  5. Create MS Access Database "TestDB.mdb"
  6. Create a Table "Authors" with 2 fields "Au_ID" and "Author"

Copy and Pate the following code:

Imports System.Data

Imports System.Data.OleDb 

Public Class Form1 

    Dim cnnOLEDB As New OleDbConnection

    Dim cmdOLEDB As New OleDbCommand
 
    Dim cmdInsert As New OleDbCommand

    Dim cmdUpdate As New OleDbCommand

    Dim cmdDelete As New OleDbCommand

    Dim strConnectionString = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=" & 
        System.Environment.CurrentDirectory & "\TestDB.mdb" 

    Private Sub Form1_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object,
        ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load 

        cnnOLEDB.ConnectionString = strConnectionString

        cnnOLEDB.Open()

    End Sub 

    Private Sub btnSearch_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object,
        ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnSearch.Click 

    txtAearchResult.Text = "" 

    Dim vSearch As String = InputBox("Enter Integer number to search name:") 

    If vSearch <> "" Then 

        cmdOLEDB.CommandText = "SELECT Au_ID,
            Author FROM Authors WHERE Au_ID=" & CInt(vSearch) 

        cmdOLEDB.Connection = cnnOLEDB

        Dim rdrOLEDB As OleDbDataReader = cmdOLEDB.ExecuteReader

        If rdrOLEDB.Read = True Then
        
        txtAearchResult.Text &= rdrOLEDB.Item(0).ToString & " " & 
            rdrOLEDB.Item(1).ToString

        rdrOLEDB.Close()

        Exit Sub

        Else

            MsgBox(rdrOLEDB.Close()

            "Record not found")

            Exit Sub 

        End If

    Else

        MsgBox("Enter search value.") 

        Exit Sub 

    End If 

    End Sub

    Private Sub btnInsert_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object,
        ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnInsert.Click 

    If txtAu_ID.Text <> "" And txtAuthor.Text <> "" Then 

        cmdInsert.CommandText = "INSERT INTO Authors (Au_ID, Author) VALUES (" & 
            xtAu_ID.Text & ", '" & txtAuthor.Text & "');" 

        'MsgBox(cmdInsert.CommandText)

         cmdInsert.CommandType = CommandType.Text

         cmdInsert.Connection = cnnOLEDB

         cmdInsert.ExecuteNonQuery()

         MsgBox(txtAu_ID.Text = "Record inserted.")"" 

         txtAuthor.Text = "" 

    Else 

        MsgBox("Enter the required values:" & 
            vbNewLine & "1. Au_ID" & vbNewLine & "2.Author")

    End If 

    cmdInsert.Dispose()

    End Sub

    Private Sub btnUpdate_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object,
        ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnUpdate.Click

    If txtAu_ID.Text <> "" And txtAuthor.Text <> "" Then

        cmdUpdate.CommandText = "UPDATE Authors SET Author = '" & txtAuthor.Text & "' 
        WHERE Au_ID = " & txtAu_ID.Text & ";" 

        'MsgBox(cmdUpdate.CommandText)

        cmdUpdate.CommandType = CommandType.Text

        cmdUpdate.Connection = cnnOLEDB

        cmdUpdate.ExecuteNonQuery()

        MsgBox(txtAu_ID.Text = "Record updated.")"" 

        txtAuthor.Text = "" 

    Else

        MsgBox("Enter the required values:" & vbNewLine & "1. Au_ID" & vbNewLine & 
            "2.Author")

    End If

    cmdUpdate.Dispose()

    End Sub

    Private Sub btnDelete_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object,
        ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnDelete.Click 

    If txtAu_ID.Text <> "" Then 

        cmdDelete.CommandText = "DELETE FROM Authors WHERE Au_ID = " &
            txtAu_ID.Text  & ";" 

        'MsgBox(cmdDelete.CommandText)

        cmdDelete.CommandType = CommandType.Text

        cmdDelete.Connection = cnnOLEDB

        cmdDelete.ExecuteNonQuery()

        MsgBox(txtAu_ID.Text = "Record deleted.")"" 

        txtAuthor.Text = "" 

        cmdDelete.Dispose()

    Else

        MsgBox("Enter the required values:" & vbNewLine & "1. Au_ID") 

    End If

    cmdUpdate.Dispose()

    End Sub

End Class
