Novice user here. I want to be able to share this with all my forms. How do I add the code to the project?

        private OleDbCommand GetCommand()
        {
            //set connection to Access 2007 database
            OleDbConnection con = new OleDbConnection();
            con.ConnectionString = @"Provider=Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0;Data Source=""" + AppDomain.CurrentDomain.BaseDirectory + @"Project.accdb""";
            con.Open();
            OleDbCommand cmd = new OleDbCommand();
            cmd.Connection = con;
            return cmd;
        }

The simplest way would be to create a static class:
public static class DataAccess
{
     public static OleDbCommand GetCommand()
     {
         ...
     }
}

Open in new window

Then from any form you can call it like:
OleDbCommand cmd = DataAccess.GetCommand();

Open in new window
