Yes. You can use the SQLConnection and SQLCommand objects

For Example:

Dim dbcon As New SqlConnection("connection string")
Dim dbcmd As New SqlCommand("Insert Into ...", dbcon)

Are you referring to "bound" Access objects? You can bind controls in .NET, however most experienced developers will tell you this is generall a bad idea.

You can build datasets/datatables in .NET, and you can use those to bind your controls. AFAIK, you cannot directly bind a control in .NET to a SELECT statement. The funcitons you mention (DCOUNT, for example) don't exist outside of Access.

Also be aware that most other programming languages are NOT data-bound, since they are intended to be used with a very wide variety of program types. VB.NET, for example, can be used to build a standard data-bound business application, or it can be used to build a game interface. Access is intended to be used with data-bound apps only (although you can do much more with it), and as such has many builtin devices to make that task easier.

Here's a very basic MSDN article about it:
