Is there any way to prevent my.mdb file to be open directly, I want to access it through C# programming only. Such as by changing the extension or any other way please suggest me.

Password protect the MDB file and have your C# program pass the password to the mdb when connecting to it. On the menu bar chose Tools-Security-Set Database Password.

I can add nothing to that perfect answer, except maybe, Welcome to Bytes!

Another solution (not better, but an alternative) is to define a form to open automatically when the database is opened. Code in the form would close the database as soon as it's opened.
