Default Microsoft Access via VB.NET

Hi,

Can you recommend a book (eBook preferred) that will do into detail on interacting with Microsoft Access and VB.NET? Ideally the book would go into detail on reading and modifying a database via Oledb.

Thanks.

John

Have you looked at any this:
Beginning Visual Basic 2010:
http://www.wrox.com/WileyCDA/WroxTit...470636416.html
Table of contents:
http://media.wiley.com/product_data/...70502223-2.pdf
DB and access coverage beginning in chapter 15

If not that, it's older and not currently available from wrox.com as an ebook but look at:
Beginning VB 2005 Databases:
http://www.wrox.com/WileyCDA/WroxTit...76458894X.html
TOC:
http://media.wiley.com/product_data/...6458894X-1.pdf
If it's Access you primarily need, that might be better as more recent books have focused less on Access as the DB.
Here's a link to one retailer I know of who sells this older book as an ebook:

Perfect! Both are exactly what I was looking for and are on my iPad as we speak.

Thanks a lot.
