  • In the "Set Variable" action, set the file's full path accordingly.

In the "Open SQL Connection" action, the following "Connection String" can be used:

Provider=Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0;Data Source=%FullPath_AccessFile%; Persist Security Info=False;

  • In the "Execute SQL Statement" action, queries can be performed, such as the "SELECT", the "INSERT INTO" and the "UPDATE".

  • Close the SQL Connection after the statements have been executed, via the "Close SQL Connection" action.
