        string connectionString =
         @"Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=C:\Databases\Departments.mdb";

        string query =
        "SELECT [ID], [ParentID], [Department], [Budget], [Location] FROM [Departments]";
        return new OleDbDataAdapter(query, myConnection);
    DataTable CreateDataTable(OleDbDataAdapter myAdapter) {
        DataTable dt = new DataTable();

        return testData.Tables[0];
    void InitTreeList(ASPxTreeList tl) {
        tl.SettingsSelection.Recursive = true;

        tl.SettingsSelection.Enabled = true;
        tl.KeyFieldName = "ID";
        tl.ParentFieldName = "ParentID";
        ASPxTreeList1.DataSource = CreateDataTable(CreateDataAdapter());
