I need to insert into an access database the values in datagrid1.  How can I do this?  Thank you

  Dim sConn As String = "Driver={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)};Dbq=c:\Splash\Splash.mdb;Uid=Admin;Pwd=;"  '<<< note the change here
        Dim cn As New OdbcConnection(sConn)


        Catch ex As Exception
        End Try

        Dim sSQL As String = "select * from tblmember where lngmemberid =" & -999
        Dim da As New OdbcDataAdapter(sSQL, cn)
        Dim ds As New DataSet

            Dim count
            DataGrid1.DataSource = ds.Tables(0)
        Catch ex As Exception
        End Try

        Dim tablestyle As New DataGridTableStyle
        tablestyle.MappingName = ds.Tables(0).TableName

        Dim column5 As New DataGridTextBoxColumn
        column5.MappingName = "strfname"
        column5.Width = 80
        column5.HeaderText = "First Name"

        column5 = New DataGridTextBoxColumn
        column5.MappingName = "strlname"
        column5.Width = 200
        column5.HeaderText = "Last Name"

        column5 = New DataGridTextBoxColumn
        column5.MappingName = "dtmdob"
        column5.Width = 120
        column5.HeaderText = "Date"

If you want to update changed data from grid (more precise from datatable, since grid is bound to datatable), it is done with DataAdapter's Fill method. But first you need to create Insert, Update and Delete queries for DataAdapter that you have used to fill datatable. This can be done either in design mode using wizard to generate this objects for you, or you retype them manually (hardest way), or you can use CommandBuilder object and pass DataAdapter to its sonctructor, and CommandBuilder will generate UpdateCommand, InsertCommand and DeleteCOmmand objects for you. Then all you need to do is call DataAdapter's Fill method
