MS Access 2016 OLEDB connection to SQLEXPRESS

I'm looking to see if there is a way to connect Access 2016 to SQL Express database using an OLE DB connection.
What I need to do is
 - import data into the SQL Express tables
 - create a form to update the SQL data
 - create queries with calculated fields
 - write reports

As of now I have the database created on my local C drive (C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL14.SQLEXPRESS\MSSQL\DATA\mydb.mdf) but in the future it will reside on the network with multiple users who will have access to the database and I don't want to have to create and ODBC connection.
Microsoft AccessSQL* OLE DB
