first Create a Table in MS-Access.

How to write a Code to Retrive data from a Ms-Access DataBase?
1)If you are using MS-Access DataBase you have to include the NameSpace as
using System.Data;
using System.Data.Oledb;

2)Connect a OledbConnection to the Ms-Access DataBase as follows.

OleDbConnection conn = new OleDbConnection(ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["MS-db1ConnectionString"].ConnectionString);

(Check the Below link to set a MS-Acces Connection String in Web.Config)

3)call the OledbCommand to retrive data from a TABLE..(here my table name is student)

OledbCommand cmd = new OleDbCommand("select column1,colum2 from student", conn);
OleDbDataAdapter da = new OleDbDataAdapter(cmd);
DataSet ds = new DataSet();
da.Fill(ds, "student");
GridView1.DataSource = ds.Tables["student"];

If your are looking to get only column names from a Table use the below code

OdbcConnection cn=new OdbcConnection("your connection string");
OdbcDataAdapter adp=new OdbcDataAdapter("select * from tablename",cn);
DataTable dt=new DataTable();

// first column name
string first = dt.Columns[0].ColumnName;
