Default Binding Textboxes


I have a web form with a few textboxes, ie Ref number, requestor, service area and I'd like to bind those textboxes to the relevant columns in the Sql db but I'm not sure how. The idea is that a user can search the db by entering their ref number and their request is displayed via the textboxes. They can then edit their request and re-submit it. I'm using textboxes rather than a details view or gridview so we have more flexibility over the design.

How do I go about doing this? Any help/code samples would be great, I'm using (or trying to use ) C#.

I posted earlier to no response to the same question so after some trial and error I came up with:
  Dim conPubs As Data.SqlClient.SqlConnection
        Dim SQL As String
        Dim MYCompany As String
        conPubs = New Data.SqlClient.SqlConnection("Server=xxx.xxx.xx.xx ;uid=;pwd=;database=DB")
        MYCompany = BillDropDown.Text

        SQL = "SELECT Name,City,Address1,Address2,State,Country,Postal_C ode,Phone_Num FROM [CUSTOMER] where NAME = '" & MYCompany & " 'Group By Name,City,Address1,Address2,State,Country,Postal_C ode,Phone_Num"
        Dim cmdSelectPeople As Data.SqlClient.SqlCommand
        Dim getpeople As Data.SqlClient.SqlDataReader

        cmdSelectPeople = New Data.SqlClient.SqlCommand(SQL, conPubs)
        getpeople = cmdSelectPeople.ExecuteReader()

        If (getpeople.HasRows) Then

            While (getpeople.Read())
                txtbillname.Text = getpeople("Name").ToString()
                txtcity.Text = getpeople("CITY").ToString()
                txtaddress.Text = getpeople("Address1").ToString()
                txtaddress2.Text = getpeople("Address2").ToString()
                txtState.Text = getpeople("State").ToString()
                txtcountry.Text = getpeople("Country").ToString()
                txtzip.Text = getpeople("Postal_Code").ToString()
                txtbillphone.Text = getpeople("Phone_Num").ToString()
            End While

        End If


Being very new to asp and dot net in general…it may not be the best but it works for me. It’s written in VB but sould give some pointers for C.
