Terry,
Welcome to JavaRanch!

Note that it is prefered to use English ('to' instead of '2' as it is easier for international and vision impaired users to read.)

Now on to your questions:

Yes, you can use JDBC with Access. JDBC is easy to learn. I recommend starting with the JDBC tutorial.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
