How do I use tableAdapter to save back into Table in Access DB (using 2005)

I have a routine which opens a connection to a csv file, and then reads it into a dataset. Next I want to save the dataset back to the db. Altho the following code is not producing an error, and /is/ filling the dataset, it is /not/ saving back into the db.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks Experts~Michael

  Public Sub LoadCSVIntoDataTable(ByVal csvPath$, ByVal tableName$)
        myOleDBConnection = New OleDb.OleDbConnection(My.Settings.myConnectionString)      ' Setup connection
        myDB.doQueryCmdUsingConnection("Delete * From AffInfo;")
        Dim conn As System.Data.Odbc.OdbcConnection
        Dim strConnstr$ = "Driver={Microsoft Text Driver (*.txt; *.csv)};Dbq=" + csvPath + ";"
        conn = New Odbc.OdbcConnection(strConnstr)

        Dim da As New System.Data.Odbc.OdbcDataAdapter("Select * From AffInfo_Update.csv", strConnstr)
        da.Fill(myDS, "AffInfo")
        'myOLEDBAdapter.Fill(myDS, "Output")


        da.Update(myDS, "AffInfo")
    End Sub
