Hi!<BR><BR>I&#039;ve got a dsn-less connection to an .mdb that happens like this:<BR><BR>accessdb=server.mappath("fpdbmydataba se.mdb")<BR><BR>Set objConn = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection") <BR><BR>objConn.ConnectionString = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0; Data Source=" & accessdb & "; userid=myuserid; password=mypassword;"<BR><BR>objConn.open<BR><BR>----------------------------<BR><BR>But the Jet Database engine is looking for the system.mdw file ("Cannot start your application. The workgroup information file is missing or opened exclusively by another user.")<BR><BR>Can I just throw a system.mdw file in a directory on my web site? Or do I have to ask my host to put it on the hosting machine? AND...(lots of questions here...)How does the connection string know where the system.mdw is?<BR><BR>Help me, please!<BR>buster<BR><BR>
