Hi Experts.  I Have a DGV, a navigator and a bindingsource to an Access database.  The data shows correctly in the DGV and the navigator handles everything in the DGV correctly, such as adding and deleting rows, etc but I see no way of saving the edited DGV back to the Access databse.  Please can someone advise how this is done.  MAny Thanks in advance.

show some code on how you are loading the data into your DataGridView. Also, have you a preference on how to save it back to Access? (e.g sql, LINQ etc ..)

What are you feeding into the bindingsource? DataTable? Are you using a TableAdapter? You need to call the Update method on it.

Hi, Im not using any code at all.    I created a dataset connected to an Access database.   I chose that dataset in the properties of the Datagridview and the bindingsource and the table adapter were created automatically.  I then connected the bindingnavigator to the binding source.   It all works correctly.  The data in the database appears in the datagridview and the navigator navigates the datagridview.   But new  entries in the datagridview are not being saved back to the database.  I thought sl8rz had it right that there would be an option for it to save back automatically?

There isn't. You need to call the Update method on the TableAdapter.
