In previous article i explained how to create connection with MS-Access database; How to bind DataGrid with access database. In this article i will teach you how to insert item into Access database using ASP.NET C#. Lets take a simple example of inserting item into access database in

First of all create connection with the access database which is already done in previous article. Now, you will do some changes in code of  GridView binding. Like replace DQL query with DML query.

Like :
cmd.CommandText = "Insert into [tablename](columnName)Values(Data)";

Also do not required to execute the query, use ExecuteNonQuery() method to insert data by the input box.

Source Code:

<%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeFile="Default7.aspx.cs" Inherits="Default7" %>

<!DOCTYPE html>

<html xmlns="">
<head runat="server">
    <form id="form1" runat="server">
        Enter Name :
        <asp:TextBox ID="TextBox1" runat="server"></asp:TextBox>
        <br />
        <br />
        <asp:Button ID="Button1" runat="server" OnClick="Button1_Click" Text="Enter Data into Excess" />
        <asp:Label ID="Label1" runat="server"></asp:Label>

Code Behind

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Web;
using System.Web.UI;
using System.Web.UI.WebControls;
using System.Data.OleDb;
using System.Configuration;

public partial class Default7 : System.Web.UI.Page
    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)

    protected void Button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
        OleDbConnection con = new OleDbConnection();
        OleDbCommand cmd=new OleDbCommand();
        cmd.CommandText = "insert into [Employee](Name1)values(@nm)";
        cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@nm", TextBox1.Text);
        cmd.Connection = con;
        int a = cmd.ExecuteNonQuery();
        if (a>0)
            Label1.Text = "Inserted";
