The following code example demonstrates how to use an AccessDataSource control and a FormParameter object to display information from a Microsoft Access database in a GridView control. The FormParameter object is added to the SelectParameters collection using the Add(Parameter) method.

Security noteSecurity Note

This example has a text box that accepts user input, which is a potential security threat. By default, ASP.NET Web pages validate that user input does not include script or HTML elements. For more information, see Script Exploits Overview.
