*.MDB support (Microsoft Access database)
Microsoft *.mdb file are very small, compact, efficient, and very easy to use with .NET
I personally use them because of their size (very very small), and everything is located in this unique file (data, provider, queries.. everything!).
People think there are limited, I believe with LINQ they are now as efficient as any other !!
Please give us support to .mdb file, I'm waiting on this since your first LinqPad public release (yep.. that's a long time waiting)
Thanks in advance for your beautifull software !!!

Thanks SO MUCH
Why is this driver not listed in the linqPad website like others ??!
Rabia : it's for *.MDB and *.accdb files..
Can you assist on how to load MDC file? I tried using this driver but cannot load MDC file in linqpad
There is a 'Microsoft Access Data Context Driver' for LinqPad
You can download it here: http://dnm-ict.nl/downloads/msaccessdatacontextdriver.ashx
(in LinqPad click on Add connection, then click on 'view more drivers...' then click on 'browse' and select the .lpx-file the driver is added on the top list-box)
I also use ms access a huge amount for small testing projects.
This would be great, as well as vba and integrated win-forms support.
Then I could replace ms access

I agree... I'm using Ms Access for small projects. I switched from Sql queries to Linq Queries which in my opinion are simpler.
I also would like support for browsing Ms Access
