Looping through records in an Access Database

I am developing a program in C#.net with an Access backend. I am trying to access each record in the first column of table.

Example

Column1
1b
2c
3d
4e

I am trying to loop through the table to access each record 1b then 2c &.3c&4c etc.
THE TABLE HAS MULTIPLE COLUMNS

You can simply open a recordset ... I'm not sure how to do that in C#, but in VBA:

Dim rst As ADODB.Recordset
Set rst = New ADODB.Recordset
rst.Open "SELECT ColumnName FROM TableName", Your_Connection_Object

Do Until rst.EOF
  '/do whatever you want here
  rst.MoveNext
Loop

Using the Snippet below,

replacing exactly my access database file path by yours:

               string lstrFilePath = @"D:\PS_1.mdb";

replacing my table name by yours:

                string lstrQuery = "SELECT * FROM Log_Data";

And don't forget add       using System.Data.OleDb;  at first






public void ReadData()
{
    string lstrFilePath = @"D:\PS_1.mdb";
    string lstrConnection = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=" + lstrFilePath;                                        
    
    OleDbConnection lOledbCon = new OleDbConnection(lstrConnection);
    lOledbCon.Open();
 
    string lstrQuery = "SELECT * FROM Log_Data";
 
    OleDbCommand lOleCmd = new OleDbCommand(lstrQuery, lOledbCon);
 
 
    // Execute the DataReader and access the data.
    OleDbDataReader lOleDataReader = lOleCmd.ExecuteReader();
 
    while (lOleDataReader.Read())
    {
        Console.WriteLine("First Column's value = {0}\n", lOleDataReader[0]);
    }
 
    // Call Close when done reading.
    lOleDataReader.Close();
    lOledbCon.Close();
}
