The Northwind database is actually a common database for testing that is provided by Microsoft. We simply packaged it inside a DLL to make it easier to include it with our product as sample data.
– the GetNorthwindDataSet() will return a DataSet with the Northdwind database
– Shippers is the Shippers table
– ShippersOrders is a detail relation on the Shippers table
If you want a copy of the actual Access database, simply do a search online for “northwind database”. There are older and newer versions, so instead of pointing you to a specific one, I will let you run the search and select the one you prefer.
