    private OleDbDataAdapter daSource = new OleDbDataAdapter(sqlSource, conSource);

    private DataTable dtSource = new DataTable("SourceTable");
    private void Form1_Load(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
    {
        string msg = "";
        long ticks = DateAndTime.Now.Ticks;
        daSource.Fill(dtSource);
        msg = (DateAndTime.Now.Ticks - ticks) / TimeSpan.TicksPerMillisecond + " milliseconds to read " + dtSource.Rows.Count + " rows of " + dtSource.Columns.Count + " fields";
