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();
