I am trying to use the following code to fill a GridView on my ASP.net
WebForm from a table in an Access database but nothing is coming through.
Dim oFullPath As String = Environ("userprofile") & "\Desktop\EMS_2007.accdb"
    Dim ConnectionString As String = "Provider=Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0;Data Source=" & oFullPath & ";"

    Dim dbadp As OleDbDataAdapter
    Dim dTable As New DataTable

 Sub Fill_GridView()
            Dim sSQL As String

            sSQL = "SELECT * FROM [AANew]"
            Dim connection As New OleDbConnection(ConnectionString)
            dbadp = New OleDbDataAdapter(sSQL, connection)

            Me.GridView1.DataSource = dTable
            'Me.DataGridView1.Columns(0).Width = 0
        Catch ex As Exception
        End Try
    End Sub
