Howto access a .mdb database with VB .NET

P: n/a
This seems like it would be pretty simple.
But I can't seem to figure out / find how to access a MS Access database
with .Net
Any samples/suggestions would be much appreciated

See the OLEDB Data Adapter.

The problem that I've been having is how to bind a control (like a textbox)
to the data access.

Didn't you find the Databinding chapters in the documentation? It's here:

Have you defined your dataset?

Hi Nate,

Here are great samples how to do that in every section.

http://msdn.microsoft.com/vbasic/vbrkit/default.aspx

And if you have problems installing it
http://msdn.microsoft.com/vbasic/vbr...q/#installvdir

And as an addition, when you see samples, keep in mind that with the
exeption of the so called parameters from the SQL string, OleDb and
SQLclient are almost everywhere the same.
(They have different connection strings, while MS access has major
disadvantages especially in sharing, have a look for MSDE as well for that)

I hope this helps a little bit?
