How do I bind a listbox or a combobox to a MDB file

You can use the classes in the System.Data.OleDb namespace to read a MDB file into a ListBox and a ComboBox. You instantiate a OleDbConnection object using a connection string to your MDB file. You then instantiate a OleDbDataAdapter that uses this connection object and a SQL query. Next you create a DataSet object, use the OleDbDataAdapter to fill this dataset, and finally attached this dataset to your control. Here is the code that does this.Notice that this code uses the same dataset object for both the listbox and the combobox. When done in this manner, the two controls are linked so that the selection in one control will be the selection in the other control. If you edit an entry in the combobox, the same entry is the listbox is changed. To avoid this linkage, just have a second dataset object for your second control.
