OleDbConnection con = new OleDbConnection("Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=D:\\db1.mdb;Persist Security Info=True;Jet OLEDB:Database Password=123456789");


string sql = "select name from record where surname= 'sharma'";

OleDbCommand com = new OleDbCommand(sql, con);

OleDbDataReader dr = com.ExecuteReader();

while (dr.Read())


ListViewItem b = new ListViewItem();

b.Text = dr1.GetString(0);







catch (Exception ex)


MessageBox.Show("" + ex);

As you got error itself describe correctly what is the cause of that error , that are saying Add(string, int)' has some invalid arguments where needed two paramter one is sting and 2nd one is int
where as you are passing 'System.Windows.Forms.ListViewItem' as first paramter b so you should pass that is string
change your code as follows

thanks.. it is working fine but the problem is that it also adds some texts with name.. it adds like : ListViewItem : {Priyanka}.
whats the reason for that ??? and whats the solution ??

if the binding text is "Priyanka" than that only ge tfrom .text property so first check in your code actually.
If you in your code there are fixed extra text in that than you will be remove from that string.
