.Net connect process to SQL 2000 sp4

Hello - hopefully an easy one for someone who knows what they are doing...  i have read a number of tutorials, but am completely new to .net.

 I am trying to start simple, I would just like to write a code which reads a record from a table, saves the value as a variable, then simply displays the variable on the screen.

My server is the local server, has a trusted connection, the SQL database is called UserDB.  The table is called Users.  The column I'd like to read is UserID (contains numeric values, 6 digits)

I have included the code below, and the error I receive at the bottom:  Any advice is greatly appreciated!

 <%@ Import Namespace="System.Data.SQLClient" %>

Dim UserIDoutput
Dim strConn as string = "server=localhost;Trusted_Connection=yes;database=UserDB"
Dim MyConn as New SQLConnection(strConn)
Dim MySQL as string = "Select (UserID) from (Users)"
Dim objDR as SQLDataReader
Dim Cmd as New SQLCommand(MySQL, MyConn)

While objDR.Read()
 response.write (UserIDoutput)
End While

 The error is

Exception Details: System.Data.SqlClient.SqlException: Line 1: Incorrect syntax near ')'.
Line 16:
Line 17: Myconn.Open()
Line 18: objDR=Cmd.ExecuteReader(system.data.CommandBehavior.CloseConnection)
Line 19: While objDR.Read()

Your SQL is invalid. Try this: Select UserID from Users

WOW, I knew that would be a quick answer for someone! 

 The tutorial I had read didn't put () around anything but table-name and database-name, so I thought it was required.

Took out the () and it worked as expected!  Thanks again!
