List tables

Imports System.Data.OleDb

Public Class Form1
    Inherits System.Windows.Forms.Form

#Region " Windows Form Designer generated code "
#End Region

    Dim sDBNAme As String = "c:\TestDB\TestDB.mdb"
    Dim cn As New OleDb.OleDbConnection()
    Dim sConn As String

    Private Sub Form1_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
        sConn = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=" & sDBNAme & ";Persist Security Info=False"
        cn = New OleDbConnection(sConn)
        cn.ConnectionString = sConn

        ' Open a connection

        Dim schemaTable As DataTable = cn.GetOleDbSchemaTable(OleDbSchemaGuid.Tables, _
        New Object() {Nothing, Nothing, Nothing, "TABLE"})

        Dim tableList As New DataTable("Table") 'Table
        Dim rowvals(0) As Object
        Dim newdc As New DataColumn("Col")
        Dim rowcoll As DataRowCollection = tableList.Rows

        Dim counter As Integer

        For counter = 0 To schemaTable.Rows.Count - 1
            Dim rd As DataRow = schemaTable.Rows(counter)
            If rd("TABLE_TYPE").ToString = "TABLE" Then
                rowvals(0) = rd("TABLE_NAME").ToString
            End If

        ' Attach data row to the grid and close the connection
        dg.DataSource = tableList

    End Sub
End Class

To know the records just run SQL select count(*) for Table  for each table
