Powershell MSAccess Database

I'm creating mini database using Microsoft Access with Powershell v5. what I want to do is to get the data from my text box and save that on msAccess Database.
Also I want to get the data from MS Access database and display that using a graph or any output type..

example table columns that I need.

Appreciate if you can help me figure out the code thanks.

Hi John, thanks for the feedback, actually I'm trying to build a mini username and password project with database where in they have to sign in first before using a tool. I want to have the user to create their own username and password and save it to secure access database.
hoping someone  can help.


user -> create username and password -> save to Ms Access -> able to pull out by power Shell

wouldn't be better to allow the users to logon to the application as new user...fill the necessary data and you will provide the username/password...probably from the combination of letters of their actual names...

@John, Yeah! I like your Idea...Sorry I dont know how to put that to codes.. I'm a newbie trying to study powershell

Created simple file: Saving database and it works for me.. But I guess your Idea is way better.

$Db = "sampledb.mdb"
$cursor = 3
$lock = 3

$conn = New-Object -ComObject ADODB.Connection
$recordset = New-Object -ComObject ADODB.Recordset
$conn.Open("Provider=Microsoft.Ace.OLEDB.12.0;Data Source=$Db")

$query = "Select * from LoginInfo"
$recordset.open($query,$conn,$cursor,$lock)

$recordset.Addnew()
$recordset.Fields.Item("EmpID") = "1"
$recordset.Fields.Item("UserName") = $username_txt.Text
$recordset.Fields.Item("PWord") = $password_txt.Text
$recordset.Fields.Item("EmpRole") = $userrole_combo.SelectedItem

$recordset.Update()
$recordset.close()
$conn.close()
