Value of type 'String' cannot be converted to 'System.Data.SqlClient.S

Im am getting the error above Value of type 'String' cannot be converted to 'System.Data.SqlClient.SqlConnection' when I try to execute the code to populate a GridView on the website with the query shown below. Any ideas why ?

Imports System.Data
Imports System.Data.SqlClient
Partial Class _Default
Inherits System.Web.UI.Page

Protected Sub btnSearch_Click(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnSearch.Click


End Sub

Private Function LoadData() As DataView

Dim ds As DataSet = New DataSet
Dim cmdSelect As New SqlCommand
Dim da As SqlDataAdapter = New SqlDataAdapter
cmdSelect.CommandText = "Select Name from Runners WHERE Name LIKE 'T%'"

cmdSelect.Connection = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=C:\runnersdb.mdb" - this bit is underlined as the problem
da.SelectCommand = cmdSelect

LoadData = ds.Tables(0).DefaultView

GridView1.DataSource = LoadData()
End Function

End Class
