what is the best way to communicate with msft office access using linq in vb.net?

I want send arrays and/or datasets to Access, then retrieve data back and forth and manipulate and work with it using linq in VB.net.

Is linqtosql my only option? what kind of connection do i have to setup? when communicating with excel, not using linq, i use... (i dont believe i can do the same with access)
imports microsoft.office.interop
public class ....
public wb as excel.workbook

Hi crew cross;

Linq queries to MS Access is not supported. The reason for this is that no one has created a driver to convert the queries to native SQL for Accree. To your question, "Is linqtosql my only option?", Linq to SQL will not work because the SQL commands are not the same. If you wish to use Linq with data from MS Access you will need to connect to Access with standard access connection and load a data table with the data then you can use Linq to Dataset to query the data.
