Hi how could I modify my code below so it also returns the number of records in the table specified? Please help!

public bool TableExist(string tbl)//tbl indicates the name of the table
            {
                  OleDbConnection conn = new OleDbConnection();
                  conn.ConnectionString =
                        @"Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;" + @"Data source=" + Access;    
                  conn.Open();
                  System.Data.DataTable Tables = conn.GetOleDbSchemaTable(OleDbSchemaGuid.Tables,new object[] {null,null,null,"TABLE"});              
                  



                  System.Data.DataRow[] dr = null;
                  
                  dr = Tables.Select("TABLE_NAME = '" + tbl + "'");  
                  
               
                  if (dr.Length <=0)
                        return false; //if table is not found return false
                  else
                        
                  //Problem line ==>Records = Tables.Rows.Count //integer Records should contain the number of records in the table tbl. This returns the number of tables in the database which is what I do not want
                        return true;                        
            }
