Hello all.<BR><BR>I've tried a number of data access examples (copy and paste), with SQL Server 7 (MSDE), with none working properly. The best I can get is an error: "Select permission denied on <tablename>...etc..."<BR><BR>Possibly related issue:<BR>When I installed the .NET framework, during the install it told me I need MDAC 2.7 in order to use .NET. I went to the MS MDAC download page, where it says 2.7 has issues with SQL Server 7.0. I did it anyway, because I didn't have a choice... .NET needed it. Can anyone help me get MSDE fixed so I can use SQL Server data access?<BR><BR>Thanks in advance.
