use OleDbCommand.ExecuteScalar method.

Here is an example:-

public void ReadMyData(string myConnString) {
   string mySelectQuery = "SELECT count(*) FROM Orders";
   OleDbConnection myConnection = new OleDbConnection(myConnString);
   OleDbCommand myCommand = new OleDbCommand(mySelectQuery,myConnection);
   myConnection.Open();
   OleDbDataReader myReader;
   myReader = myCommand.ExecuteReader();
   // Always call Read before accessing data.
   while (myReader.Read()) {
      Console.WriteLine(myReader.GetInt32(0));
   }
   // always call Close when done reading.
   myReader.Close();
   // Close the connection when done with it.
   myConnection.Close();
}
