 Protected Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click

        Dim connection As New SqlConnection()
        Dim query As String = "Select * from package where [email protected] and [email protected]"
        Dim command As New SqlCommand(query, connection)

        connection.ConnectionString = ConnString

        Dim reader As SqlDataReader = command.ExecuteReader()

If you're returning data from CurrentLocation column based on if the input is equal to data in your TrackingNumber column then you can do that in SQL like this:

SELECT currentlocation FROM package
WHERE trackingnum = @TrackingNum

Then after you execute the command, you can return the data in VB .NET like so:
        If reader.HasRows Then
            Do While reader.Read()
                'Get the currentlocation reader.GetString(0) and do something with it
           'No rows found
        End If


However, before you execute your command you will need to create a parameter for @TrackingNum. You should read this link on msdn on the details for configuring parameters for SqlConnections. You will set the value of the parameter to textbox.Text property. Hope this helps...
