You will be transfering data between two OLEDB connections, one to Access, another to the csv file. See this walkthrough as an example:

http://www.mssqltips.com/sqlservertip/2656/simple-step-by-step-process-to-import-ms-access-data-into-sql-server-using-ssis/

In your case instead of sql server you will have to configure OLEDB connection to the CSV file. Create separate folder and put CSV file in it. For the purposes of import, the folder will become "the database", and each file inside will be "a table". To describe the structure, create schema.ini file.

as an aside, you could use access with ODBC to a table in sql database, and have your SSIS append to the table....

What do you intend to do with the data once the "Csv" has been injected into an Access Table?

Well, my purpose is having the table in access, i have created a standalone application in access. and i need to users to views tables inside this access apps.
the point is that access at the main time have 1 linked csv files that the users use them through forms..
if the user run a form that it`s source is a linked csv . other users can`t open the same form.
(no multiuser can run same linked csv/excel files) in access.
that`s y i need to run a SSIS process to export this file.csv into access table everyday at night.

if you had an odbc linked table in access linked to the sql server table / view that you are exporting, your multiple users should all be able to open it.

If you use ODBC it will stop your access db bloating due to the data being re imported every night.
