Here is a simple example in VB. Maybe it can help:


' add a reference to Microsoft ActiveX Data Objects Library:
Dim DataBase As String
Dim cn As ADODB.Connection
Dim rs As ADODB.Recordset

Private Sub Form_Load()
DataBase = "C:\MyDataBase.mdb"

' open Database Connection
Set cn = New ADODB.Connection
cn.ConnectionString = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source='" & DataBase & "'"
cn.CursorLocation = adUseClient
cn.Open

' open recordset
Set rs = New ADODB.Recordset
' EDIT TABLENAME BELOW
rs.Open "Select * From YourDBTableName", cn, adOpenKeyset, adLockOptimistic

End Sub


Private Sub Command1_Click()
' add new record to Table
rs.AddNew
rs.Fields("Field1").Value = Field1.Text
rs.Fields("Field2").Value = Field2.Text
rs.Fields("Field3").Value = Field3.Text
rs.Update

End Sub


Private Sub Form_Unload(Cancel As Integer)
' close recordset
rs.Close
Set rs = Nothing

' close connection
cn.Close
Set cn = Nothing
End Sub

Just replace YourDBTableName with Table1 and it should work.
