Dear experts,

I am writing a C# Windows form program to integrate some data from Access databases. A lot of INSERT and UPDATE will be made. What is the best way to establish the database connection, ADODB, OLEDB, ADOX? Thanks in advance.

Define "Integrate" in terms of exactly what you will be doing.

I think I see more ADO than anything else..

I reckon either ado.net or oledb would be good enough. I am not sure but I did read somewhere ado.net slightly slower but don't quote me on that.

some alternatives to throw at you. Have a look at linq (though I don't think there is much out there for msaccess) and if u want to hide more of the coding, nhibernate though it probably not worth it if you are just doing some updates

Thanks to all for answering.
I'd like to accept both minhvc and rockiroads' answers. It looks like OLE DB is the one to use.

 All are the same thing.   OLEDB is a data provider, ADO a consumer.  ADOX is ADO extentions for security, etc., which you may not need.

 In short, you'll be using ADO, which will talk to the JET OLDEDB provider.

Jim.
