How to DataAdapter in OLEDB

OleDbDataAdapter provides the communication between the Dataset and the Data Source with the help of OleDbConnection Object . The OleDbConnection Object has no information about the data it retrieves . Similarly a Dataset has no knowledge of the Data Source where the data coming from. So the OleDbDataAdapter manage the communication between these two Objects.

OleDbDataAdapter is used to retrieve data from a data source and populate tables within a DataSet . The OleDbDataAdapter also resolves changes made to the DataSet back to the data source. The OleDbDataAdapter object allows us to populate Data Tables in a DataSet. We can use Fill method of the OleDbDataAdapter for populating data in a Dataset. The following c# Source Code shows a simple program that uses OleDbDataAdapter to retrieve data from Data Source with the help of OleDbConnection object and populate the data in a Dataset.

using System;
using System.Data;
using System.Data.OleDb;
using System.Windows.Forms;

namespace WindowsApplication1
    public partial class Form1 : Form
        public Form1()

        private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
            string connetionString = null;
            OleDbConnection connection ;
            OleDbDataAdapter oledbAdapter ;
            DataSet ds = new DataSet();
            int i = 0;
            connetionString = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=Your mdb filename;";
            connection = new OleDbConnection(connetionString);
                oledbAdapter = new OleDbDataAdapter("select * from users", connection);
                for (i = 0; i <= ds.Tables[0].Rows.Count - 1; i++)
                    MessageBox.Show (ds.Tables[0].Rows[i].ItemArray[0].ToString ());
            catch (Exception ex)
