Hi there  waddah:


  i´ve used and tested this procedure on Windows 2000 and 2003:


- - - - Below the Inherits statement, enter the following:

Private strOLEDB_ConnectionString As String = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0; Data Source =C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\Samples\Nortwind.mdb;"       - - - -  Just make sure the path is the correct one

Private cnOLEDB As New Oledb.OleDbConnection(strOLEDB_ConnectionString)



Private daCustomers As New Oledb.OleDbDataAdapter( "Select * from Customers",cnOLEDB)

Private cbCustomers As New Oledb.Oledb.CommandBuilder(daCustomers)

Private dsExamples As New DataSet("dsExamples")


- - - In a defined procedure load the data from your DB


Private Sub mnuOLEDB_ LoadData_Click ( )
daCustomers.Fill ( dsExamples, "Customers")

Dim dcCustomerID As DataColumn=dsExamples.Tables("Customers").Columns("CustomerID")

dsExamples.Relations.Add("CustOrders",dcCustomerID,dcOrderCustID)


hope this is useful..if you need something more please feel free to ask...

            Dim strFN, strLN As String
            Dim DBInsert As New OleDbCommand
            strFN = txtF.Text
            strLN = txtL.Text
            strDept = LocationBox.SelectedItem
            strPath = txtPath.Text
            DBConn = New OleDbConnection("Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0; Data Source =C:\db.mdb;)" _
            DBInsert.CommandText = "Insert Into Employee " _
            & "(FName,LName) " _
            & "Values (" _
            & "'" & strFN & "', " _
            & "'" & strLN & "')"
            DBInsert.Connection = DBConn
            DBInsert.Connection.Open()
            DBInsert.ExecuteNonQuery()
