'Declaration
Public Property Connection As SqlConnection

Type: System.Data.SqlClient.SqlConnection
The connection to a data source. The default value is Nothing.

The Connection property was changed while the command was enlisted in a transaction..

The following example creates a SqlCommand and sets some of its properties.

Public Sub CreateCommand(ByVal queryString As String, _
  ByVal connectionString As String)
    Using connection As New SqlConnection(connectionString)
        Dim command As New SqlCommand()
        command.Connection = connection
        command.CommandTimeout = 15
        command.CommandType = CommandType.Text
        command.CommandText = queryString

        connection.Open()
        Dim reader As SqlDataReader = command.ExecuteReader()
            While reader.Read()
            Console.WriteLine(String.Format("{0}, {1}", _
                reader(0), reader(1)))
        End While 
    End Using 
End Sub
