Write to an AccessData base

How is this done?

I have the following code that opens the database but how do I write to it?

The database Customer has three colums
name, phone, adress
con = new System.Data.OleDb.OleDbConnection();
        ds1 = new DataSet();
        con.ConnectionString = "PROVIDER=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source= C:\\Documents and Settings\\MFL\\Dokumenter\\Visual Studio 2005\\WebSites\\WebSite\\WebSite\\Nwind.mdb";
        con.Open();
 
 
 
        con.Close();
        con.Dispose();
}

this is an example how you can insert new row to access database
also check this link for more info:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.data.oledb(VS.71).aspx
public void InsertRow(string myConnectionString) 
{
   // If the connection string is null, use a default.
   if(myConnectionString == "") 
   {
      myConnectionString = "Provider=SQLOLEDB;Data Source=localhost;Initial Catalog=Northwind;" + 
      "Integrated Security=SSPI;";
   }
   OleDbConnection myConnection = new OleDbConnection(myConnectionString);
   string myInsertQuery = "INSERT INTO Customers (CustomerID, CompanyName) Values('NWIND', 'Northwind Traders')";
   OleDbCommand myCommand = new OleDbCommand(myInsertQuery);
   myCommand.Connection = myConnection;
   myConnection.Open();
   myCommand.ExecuteNonQuery();
   myCommand.Connection.Close();
}

you say it should have a public void InsertRow(string myConnectionString)

what is myConnectonString?

I got this:
            private System.Data.OleDb.OleDbConnection con;
        private DataSet ds1;
        private System.Data.OleDb.OleDbDataAdapter da;
        con = new System.Data.OleDb.OleDbConnection();
        ds1 = new DataSet();
        con.ConnectionString = "PROVIDER=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source= C:\\Documents and Settings\\MFL\\Dokumenter\\Visual Studio 2005\\WebSites\\WebSite\\WebSite\\Nwind.mdb";
        con.Open();
