Hi. I am a newbie in .net ...
How do I make connection for my web site to access database: "c:\database.accdb"
And how do I read the columns: id, title, content ... I want to display data on page load and limit it to only one record at a time.
I would than filter the records using querystring from the URL.

Here is the code i have till now (of course empty ;) )
using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Data;
using System.Linq;
using System.Web;
using System.Web.UI;
using System.Web.UI.WebControls;

public partial class _Default : System.Web.UI.Page
{

    protected string title;
    protected string content;


    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {


        // some code here


    }
}

Open in new window

<%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeFile="Default.aspx.cs" Inherits="_Default" %>

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head runat="server">
    <title></title>
</head>
<body>
    <form id="form1" runat="server">
    <div>
        <h1>Title: <%=title %></h1>
        <p>Content: <%=content %></p>
    </div>
    </form>
</body>
</html>

this one maybe better (though the extension is mdb instead of accdb)

Connection to an Access database not much different from other databases. The main thing is to provide proper connection string. First - it is proper provider, for Access it's OLEDB, Then, proper path tothe Access database (e.g., Northwind DB). So,  it's like:

string conString =
              @"Provider=Microsoft.JET.OLEDB.4.0;"
            + @"data source=c:\data\Northwind.mdb";
 
In your case you just need to provide a proper path to your specific database. That's all.

Just in case - some more links:
