I'm using the attached code to add a record to an Access DB everything seems to work except the record is never added.  No error is displayed.  The table (table1) in the Access DB has the below fields:
ID   (Key)
Item
PN
Rev

I think that it may have something to do with the Key.  I can see that the data in the datatable has added the record when the dt.Rows.Add(dr) command is executed but after the da.Update(dt) and dt.AcceptChanges() command are executed the Access DB doesn't contain the new record.
strSQL = "SELECT * FROM table1"
        Dim da As New OleDb.OleDbDataAdapter(strSQL, OLEConn)
        Dim cb As New OleDb.OleDbCommandBuilder(da)
        Dim dt As New DataTable
        da.Fill(dt)
        Dim dr As DataRow = dt.NewRow
 
        dr.Item("Item") = txtSystem.Text
        dr.Item("PN") = txtLocation.Text
        dr.Item("Rev") = txtCarrier.Text
 
        dt.Rows.Add(dr)
        da.Update(dt)
        dt.AcceptChanges()
