Invalid connection?

This is the code I use:
-----------------------------
SqlConnection myConnection = new SqlConnection("Data Source=" + Server.MapPath("nyheter.mdb") + ";");
string myInsertQuery = "INSERT INTO tblNyheter (nyhetsRubrik, nyhetsText, nyhetsUser) Values('" + strRubrik + "', '" + strText + "', '" + strUser + "')";
SqlCommand myCommand = new SqlCommand(myInsertQuery);
myCommand.Connection = myConnection;
myConnection.Open();
myCommand.ExecuteNonQuery();
myCommand.Connection.Close();
-----------------------------

I get the error message "Invalid connection" when on the line "myConnection.Open();".

Anyone who can help me out?

I'd appreciate a quick answer (more points to earn).

There are a few problems with your code.

For MS Access database updates you need to use the System.Data.OleDb namespace, not System.Data.SqlClient.  So you would use OleDbConnection not SqlConnection.  And OleDbCommand not SqlCommand.

Also you connection string doesn't have a provider element, this should be something like Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;

Finally, it's better practice to use the OleDBCommand.Parameters collection to include variable items in your sql string.. do something like

string myInsertQuery = "INSERT INTO tblNyheter (nyhetsRubrik, nyhetsText, nyhetsUser) Values(?, ?, ?)";

System.Data.OleDb.OleDbCommand myCommand = new System.Data.OleDb.OleDbCommand(myInsertQuery);
myCommand.Parameters.Add(new System.Data.OleDb.OleDbParameter("nyhetsRubrik", strRubrik));
myCommand.Parameters.Add(new System.Data.OleDb.OleDbParameter("nyhetsText", strText));
myCommand.Parameters.Add(new System.Data.OleDb.OleDbParameter("nyhetsUser", strUser)):
