first, what of grid that you want to use with data control.
On Properties of Data1 :

DatabaseName = your database pathName.
RecordSource = Table that you want to use.

Then, Ex you use MSFlexGrid :
On MSFlexGrid properties ->DataSource = Data1

You mean Data Environment? Well, if it is.. Try this...

'DE is a Data Environment
Public myDe As New De

Sub Main()
     myDe.Conn.ConnectionString = "Data Source=" & App.path & "\Database.mdb;"
    myDe.Conn.Open
Exit Sub

ok i 've attached a sample application built on an access database.
run this code and check whether it helps you.

if it is then don't forget to forward me your feedback otherwise if u got any more problem re-post those again.

good luck
