    As far as I know, you can't use the LinqDataSource control as there is no supported LINQ to SQL provider for Access. You might be able to use EntityDataSource control with this library: https://jetentityframeworkprovider.codeplex.com/, but it looks pretty new so I can't say how stable it is. It also looks like it might only work with .mdb files, not .accdb files. I base that guess off the class names. I don't know for certain.

    I don't think using either of these controls will be any faster than using a SqlDataSource control instead.
