want insert only selected field in access database

This is why you should use parametrized queries, and not concat string, which is an overhead in c#. Look here: "','" + "','". Do you see the problem? You have 7 parameters inside the parentheses, and 8 in the values section, because of this one.

Have a good look at this tutorial:[^], and rewrite your code before more you get more headacks...

Oh dear...

The error message is pretty explicit:
Number of query values and destination fields are not the same.

So the number of fields you list in teh columns:
INSERT INTO (col1, col2, col3) ...
Does not match teh number of values you are passing through:
... VALUES 1,2,3,4

And if you cut out the "packaging" from your query it's pretty obvious:
st = "insert into Member_Datails(Name,Gender,Address,Contactno,Paid_Amount,Count_Remaining,Joining_date) values('name','gender','address','ContactNo','PaidAmount','SetThali','','joiningdate')";
You have 7 columns named, and 8 values.

But...don't do it like that! Do not concatenate strings to build a SQL command. It leaves you wide open to accidental or deliberate SQL Injection attack which can destroy your entire database. Use Parametrized queries instead.

use parameterized query, it is more safe and you can avoid issues like incorrect data formats etc..
insert into Member_Datails(Name,Gender,Address,Contactno,Paid_Amount,Count_Remaining,Joining_date) values(?,?,?,?,?,?,?)

change the sql statement as above and set the parameter values as the sequence given in the insert statement

OleDbCommand cmd = new OleDbCommand("insert into Member_Datails(Name,Gender,Address,Contactno,Paid_Amount,Count_Remaining,Joining_date) values(?,?,?,?,?,?,?)", con);
cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@Name", name);
cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@Gender", gender);
cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@Address", address);
cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@Contactno", ContactNo );
cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@PaidAmount", PaidAmount);
cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@Count_Remaining", CountRemaining);
cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@Joining_date", joiningdate);

? and @...?

yes, this is OleDbCommand, please check remarks section of[^]
parameter name does not matter when set the parameter values, need to add parameters in same order in the sql statement

I don't really get the use of names in this case, but you'r right. I skipped OleDb :)
