I want to know that how can I able to search for a specific record using wild card characters like '*' in vb 2005? As an example I want to search for details of an specific customer such as his first name will begin with 'R'? The result should include the First names as Rocky, Ramesh, Rani e.t.c!

You can always use LINQ.

var q = (from c in NamesList
where Name.StartsWith("R")
select c)

In that case just use the LIKE operator in SQL.
select * from table where name LIKE ('R%').
