If you want to connect to Access Database.

You have to follow the following steps:-

1) First add "using System.Data.OleDb;" at to top of the CS file.

2) Create connection string and open connection.
For access 2007
string ConnStr = @"Provider=Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0;Data Source=D:\abc.mdb;Jet OLEDB:Database Password=password";
OleDbConnection MyConn = new OleDbConnection(ConnStr);           

3) Open this connection.

4) Create object for command and reader to get the data from access database.
OleDbCommand Cmd = new OleDbCommand(StrCmd, MyConn);;
OleDbDataReader ObjReader = Cmd.ExecuteReader();

5) Now lood through the reader object to get the data
if (ObjReader != null)


6) After completing the processing

Thats all!

The main thing that you need to know the ADO.NET
use system.data.oledb

This is the sample code for connecting with ACCESS

Code Block:

OleDbConnection con;   // create connection
OleDbCommand com; // create command
OleDbDataReader dr; //Dataread for read data from database
con = new OleDbConnection("Provider = Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0; Data Source = D:\\mydb.mdb");
com = new OleDbCommand("Select * from Table1",con);
con.Open();                                        // open the coinnection
dr = com.ExecuteReader();

//now you can store into Gridview
GridView1.DataSource = dr;
con.Close(); //Close the connection

Simply you can use insertcommand with OledbCommand
