    hi, I'm a new on ASP.net and I have a couple problems

    1- how to make a search (textbox) for the AccessDataSource (Access DB connectivity) for a specific field,

    2- and how to put the found record in another textbox (withou using gridview, or listview and the other), all what I want to say that I want to fix a textbox control and connecting it to a specific field from the Access DB.

    To your first question——

    You should set a unknown parameter variable in your select sql statament for your Access's db and use ControlParameter to bind its value to the parameter. Something like what I've shown to you in this similar sample (though it's type of SqlDataSource, but the wizard steps are nearly the same. You can change them to AccessDataSource and apply it)


    To your 2nd question——

    Just use OleDBConnection+OleDbCommand——

    using (OleDbConnection con = new OleDbConnection(……))


      using (OleDbCommand cmd = new OleDbCommand("select top 1 fieldname from xxx where ……",con))



             TextBox1.Text = cmd.ExecuteScalar().ToString();
