How to: Window application with Delphi XE to access MS Access database?

I need to develop a Window application with Delphi XE to generate a form, which can display the data retrieved from an existing Microsoft Access database and update the data value in database as needed. Can someone advise me how should I get started and which implementation shall I use? Which tutorial materials can I look for? 

I am a new Delphi user. I called Embarcadero tech support on this subject, but got zero support from them. 

Thank you.

There are many sites that meet your requirements but none are better, in my
mind, than http://delphi.about.com/ for someone who is totally new to the
product and looking for tutorials and tons of information.

Good luck, I think you've made a wise choice.

Which edition are you using Starter/Pro/Enterprise/Architect?

You can use either the dbGo ADO connections or dbExpress through dbx open odbc, there are also a number of third party developers that offer ms access db connections

Connecting to a MS Access database in Delphi XE5?
Does anyone have a simple code example for connecting to an Access database from a VCL Forms application using XE5? Originally, we used the dbExpress Open ODBC driver in XE2 but that no longer works. The DbxXXDrv unit references Dbx34Drv, which in turn references DBXMetaDataCommand, which does not exist in my XE5 Enterprise install. So I thought I'd try FireDAC, as there is Connect to Microsoft Access Database (FireDAC) topic in the docwiki. I dropped a TFDPhysMSAccessDriverLink onto a form, set the DriverID to MSAcc and the ODBCDriver to MS Access (*.mdb), but could not find the Dat...
