YOu cannot "embade" Access dataBase into your project, as for example you can do with MS SQL Express dataBase.
What you can do is to use a connection string with explicitly setting the path to the dataBase, and then is expected that the dataBase has to be there on that path.
Or you can use an OpenFileDialog class to ask a use to find his dataBase on hdd. Use filter for showing only files form access.
