Default Connection to a Access database


I am trying to populate a list box using the following code. The code compiles ok but the listbox does not populate! Any ideas??



<%@ Import namespace="System.Data" %>
<%@ Import namespace="System.Data.OleDb" %>

    <title>using a Listbox</title>
    <h3>Using a Listbox</h3>
    <form runat="server">
      <asp:ListBox id="IbxEmployees" runat="server"
       OnSelectedIndexChanged="subListChange" />

<script language="C#" runat="server">
private void Load_Page(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
  if (!IsPostBack)
        String strConnection = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OleDb.4.0; data source=C:\\test\\Northwind.mdb;";
    OleDbConnection objConnection = new OleDbConnection(strConnection);

    String strSQLforListBox = "SELECT LastName, EmployeeID " + "FROM Employees ORDER BY LastName";
    OleDbCommand objCommand = new OleDbCommand(strSQLforListBox, objConnection);

    IbxEmployees.DataSource = objCommand.ExecuteReader();
    IbxEmployees.DataTextField = "LastName";
        IbxEmployees.DataValueField = "EmployeeID";

Is it on purpose that you have called the method Load_Page and not Page_Load...?!
