Add a reference to System.Data in your project so you are able to use the SqlConnection..

Then something like this might get you started. :)

Imports System.Data.SqlClient
Public Class Form1
    Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
        Dim connetionString As String
        Dim sqlCnn As SqlConnection
        Dim sqlCmd As SqlCommand
        Dim sql As String

        connetionString = "Data Source=ServerName;Initial Catalog=DatabaseName;User ID=UserName;Password=Password"
        sql = "SELECT column1, column2, etc FROM tablename"

        sqlCnn = New SqlConnection(connetionString)
            sqlCmd = New SqlCommand(sql, sqlCnn)
            Dim sqlReader As SqlDataReader = sqlCmd.ExecuteReader()
            While sqlReader.Read()
                MsgBox(sqlReader.Item(0) & "  -  " & sqlReader.Item(1) & "  -  " & sqlReader.Item(2))
            End While
        Catch ex As Exception
            MsgBox("Can not open connection ! ")
        End Try
    End Sub
End Class

Good luck! And let us know your progress! :)

@John Hanker: Where and How I can add Reference. data in project? i mean where i place this code?

In the solution explorer (the project treeview) in visual studio, there is a folder called references. Right click that folder and select add reference from the menu.

Oh, it's a web project! My fault. There's no References folder there.

Instead, right click the project name in solution explorer (the item selected in your submitted screenshot) and select add reference in the menu.
