Default How to connect to Access db thru VB.NET?


I am a little bit confused with database connection in VB.NET.

How many ways there are?! And which one should I use?

for example, I want to get the data from an Access database and pass it to datagrid control.

Is there any detailed tutorial?

Your help is greatly appreciated.

Hi there,

You didn't get a useful reply because you are asking the wrong questions.

First of all, you are WRITING IN ALL CAPS which is considered shouting which is an impolite thing to do.

Secondly, you are not really asking a question. You are merely making a statement about the things you want to do. That's all nice and fine, but do you really expect us to write a full blown response based on a statement like "I want to connect"? How about showing us what you already know and have done? How about using Google to find relevant articles? How about buying a book to get you started like Beginning VB Databases? Or how about checking out the .NET quick starts?

Finally, saying it's urgent, especially with these kind of questions, is probably the best way to be completely ignored.

So, with these kind of questions that show you haven't bothered to do any research yourself, you'll get these kind of answers.

For a lot more background on my reply, look here: http://www.catb.org/~esr/faqs/smart-questions.html
