Ok, lets see if I can expain better, unfortunately I am somewhat of a beginner. I am using Microsoft office access 2007, using Microsoft Vista, and visual studio 2008. I am writting a program that uses a GUI to show and change a Access data base. When I first tried to run it from start without debugging, it gave me an error message that said: The Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0' provider is not registered on the local machine". After looking through articles I found a suggestion to change the configuration manager to x86. After doing this I received a new error message when I tried to start without debugging it reads:

"Could not find installable ISAM"

This is the code I have entered into form1.cs:

using System;

using System.Collections.Generic;

using System.ComponentModel;

using System.Data;

using System.Drawing;

using System.Linq;

using System.Text;

using System.Windows.Forms;





namespace DB3

{

    public partial class Form1 : Form

    {



        DataTable custDataTable;

        System.Data.OleDb.OleDbConnection custConnect;

        System.Data.OleDb.OleDbDataAdapter custDataAdapter;

        BindingSource custBindingSource = new BindingSource();



        public Form1()

        {

            InitializeComponent();

        }



        private void buttonLD_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)

        {

            String sqlStr = "Select * From CustomerTable";



            custConnect = new System.Data.OleDb.OleDbConnection();



            custDataTable = new DataTable();



            custConnect.ConnectionString = "Provider=Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0;" +

                "DataSource=Customer.accdb";



            custConnect.Open();



            custDataAdapter = new System.Data.OleDb.OleDbDataAdapter(sqlStr, custConnect);



            custDataAdapter.Fill(custDataTable);



            custBindingSource.DataSource = custDataTable;



            customerTableDataGridView.DataSource = custBindingSource;

        }

    }

}

I just can't seem to figure this out, I won't go into how many hours I have spent on this, any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Hello.

I've looked around and found this MSDN walktrough that should help you: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms171893%28v=VS.80%29.aspx
I also recommend you to use the code-tag for your code, it's easier to read that way.

I hope this helps!

Wow, can't thank you enough. I could swear this was what I was doing all along but apparently not. Worked through it, the first time through I still got an error. Went to Configuration manager and set to x86, just like before, but this time it actually worked. Horray!!
