Accessing a MS Access database

Hi, I would like to do a lookup into an Access database, and display the result in a grid.

I'm an embedded programmer being thrown into the world of .net, asp, VB, and databases so I don't know where to start :-) ...... can anyone help me ?

Really jus ta matter of making a connection, doing your query, and displaying results.

Here is a sample from a module I use.
The data is bound to a datagrid.
        Sub LoadSchedule()

Dim strSrc As String = CType(Settings("src"), String)
If Trim(strSrc) <> "" Then
OleDbComm.CommandText = "SELECT * from Schedule Where Week = " & cboWeek.SelectedValue
OleDbComm.Connection = Me.OleDbConn
Dim Reader As System.Data.OleDb.OleDbDataReader
OleDbConn.ConnectionString = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Password="""";User ID=Admin;Data Source=" & strSrc & ";Mode=Share Deny No" & _
"ne;Extended Properties="""";Jet OLEDB:System database="""";Jet OLEDB:Registry Path=""" & _
""";Jet OLEDB:Database Password="""";Jet OLEDB:Engine Type=4;Jet OLEDB:Database Lock" & _
"ing Mode=0;Jet OLEDB:Global Partial Bulk Ops=2;Jet OLEDB:Global Bulk Transaction" & _
"s=1;Jet OLEDB:New Database Password="""";Jet OLEDB:Create System Database=False;Je" & _
"t OLEDB:Encrypt Database=False;Jet OLEDB:Don't Copy Locale on Compact=False;Jet " & _
"OLEDB:Compact Without Replica Repair=False;Jet OLEDB:SFP=False"
Reader = OleDbComm.ExecuteReader()
dg.DataSource = Reader
End If
End Sub

I need to use an ODBC System DSN, and I thought of writing the code like this:

Dim dbCon As New SqlConnection()
dbCon.ConnectionString = "Something_that_points_to_my_DSN"

I can't find any help on how to get the ConnectionString right, can anyone help me ?

You should use OleDb rather than ODBC.
