Yes.  The dot net framework data provider supports connection to MS Access using oledb provider as well as ODBC.

If all you're doing is adding a record, you can do this:

Dim con As New OLEDB.OLEDBConnection
con.ConnectionString = "ConnectionString"
con.Open

Dim cmd As New OLEDB.OLEDBCommand
cmd.Connection = con

cmd.CommandText = "INSERT INTO MyTable(Col1, Col2, Col3) VALUES('" Me.txCol1 & "','" & Me.txControl2 & "','" & Me.txControl5  & "')"
cmd.ExecuteNonQuery

Open in new window

You can get lots of examples of connection strings at www.connectionstrings.com

            cmd.CommandText = cmd.CommandText = "INSERT INTO Contacts(title, FirstName, LastName, Address1, Address2, Address3, City, County, PostCode, Phone, Mobile, Email, Notes) VALUES('"me.title.text & "','" & Me.firstname.text & "','" & Me.last.text  & "','" & address1.text & "','" & Address2.text & "','" & Address3.text & "','" & city.text & "','" & county.text & "','" & postcode.text & "','" & phone.text & "','" & mobile.text & "','" & email.text & "','" & notes.text "')" 

Open in new window


It's just that line which is causing problems.

You have this:

cmd.commandtext = cmd.commandtext = "INSERT blah blah"

It should look something like this:

cmd.CommandText = "INSERT blah blah"

And you have a missing concatenation  right after VALUES.

VALUES('"me.title.text & "

should bb

VALUES('" & me.title.text & "
