Default Using Data from Recordset

Hi, this is probably the worse question anyone has asked, but here goes.
I have a connection to my sql db, using vb05, I can dump the recordset into a datagridview object with little effort, but, when querying for single record and single field, I cant seem to dump the returned value to a variable,


        ' Dim y As Integer
        Dim sql As String
        Dim series As String

        sql = "select Series from ModelMstr where partno='" + Part + "'"

        Dim cmd As SqlCommand
        cmd = New SqlCommand(sql, sqlConnect)

        Dim adapter As SqlDataAdapter
        adapter = New SqlDataAdapter(cmd)
        Dim row As Integer

        Dim ds As DataSet
        ds = New DataSet()
        'Dim x As String
        Me.DataGridView1.DataSource = ds
        Me.DataGridView1.DataSource = ds.Tables(0)
        Me.ComboBox1.DataSource = ds
        Me.ComboBox1.DataSource = ds.Tables(0)
        Me.ComboBox1.DisplayMember = "PartNumber"

I think you need to also assign the .ValueMember property to "PartNumber" as well when setting the datasource. I may be wrong but try it.
