Hi, I'm very new to .NET, and this is my first posting here. I have searched and searched for answer to this problem, and tried every suggestion, but i can't seem to figure it out.

I'm using ASP.NET, and trying to use the Data Toolbox to establish a connection to a folder on my harddrive which has several .dbf files. Ultimately, i'd like a DataGrid on my form which is populated by a DataSet resulting from a SQL Query.

First question, can I use the OleDbDataAdapter from the toolbox for this? there doesn't seem to be a "provider" that works with .dbf. There seem to be problems with the OdbcDataAdapter as well...

Second Question, is it possible to include text from a txtBox in the Query Builder? keeping in mind that the txtBox is not yet populated until a user inputs something and clicks "submit".
