Default syntax error?<%@ Import Namespace="System.Data" %>

hi, could someone please help --------

<%@ Import Namespace="System.Data" %>
<%@ Import Namespace="System.Data.OleDb" %>
<script language="C#" runat="server">
    void Page_Load(Object sender, EventArgs e)
        OleDbConnection objConnection;
        OleDbConnection objCommand;
        string strConnect;
        string strCommand;
        DataSet DataSet1 = new DataSet();

        strConnect = @"Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;";

        //If you don't have the grocertogo.mdb database then
        //you will have to change the following three lines

        strConnect += @"Data Source=C:\program files\microsoft.net\FrameworkSDK\";
        strConnect += @"Samples\quickstart\assplus\samples\grocertogo\da ta";
        strConnect += @"\grocertogo.mdb;";

        strConnect += "Persist Security Info=False";

        strCommand = "SELECT ProductName, UnitPrice FROM Products";
        objConnection = new OleDbConnection(strConnect);
        objCommand = new OleDbDataAdapter(strCommand, objConnection);
        objCommand.Fill(DataSet1, "products");

    <title>Data Grid Control example</title>
    <asp:DataGrid ID="DataGrid1" runat="server" />


and i am getting this error:

Compiler Error Message: CS0029: Cannot implicitly convert type 'System.Data.OleDb.OleDbDataAdapter' to 'System.Data.OleDb.OleDbConnection'

Source Error:

Line 23: strCommand = "SELECT ProductName, UnitPrice FROM Products";
Line 24: objConnection = new OleDbConnection(strConnect);
Line 25: objCommand = new OleDbDataAdapter(strCommand, objConnection);
Line 26: objCommand.Fill(DataSet1, "products");
Line 27: DataGrid1.DataSource=DataSet1.Tables["Products"].DefaultView;


also, a squigley line is under <%@ Namespace="System.Data" %> - and when hovering over it it says - "syntax error"
