How to embed MS Access table in .net form

I want to embed Access table on a .net form instead of a table/datagrid showing the same data. How can this be done?

Three options,

1) Dont use winforms. Use Access only.

2) Use winforms and show Access on your form

3) Use winforms and try to provide maximum functionality using controls like grid etc.

Access table is very powerful with all the filter capability. I want to show that table on a .net form.

object oDocument;
 
private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
 {
 string sFileName;
 openFileDialog1.FileName = "";
 openFileDialog1.ShowDialog();
 sFileName = openFileDialog1.FileName;
 
 if (sFileName.Length!=0)
 {
 oDocument = null;
 webBrowser1.Navigate(sFileName);
 }
 }
 
 private void Form1_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
 {
 openFileDialog1.Filter = "Office Documents " + " " + "(*.doc, *.xls, *.ppt,*.mdb )|*.doc;*.xls;*.ppt;*.mdb";
 openFileDialog1.FilterIndex = 1;
 
 }
