I have downloaded the source code for a bulletin board from<BR><BR>http://www.ultimateasp.com/free/downloads.asp<BR><BR>However this does not come with any instructions for installation. The code for establishing the database connection is as follows (the database is called Bulletin.mdb):<BR><BR> <BR><BR>Sub OpenDB (ByRef con, d)<BR><BR>DB = d & ".mdb"<BR><BR>Dir = Request.ServerVariables("SCRIPT_NAME")<BR><BR>Dir = StrReverse(Dir)<BR><BR>Dir = Mid(Dir, InStr(1, Dir, "/"))<BR><BR>Dir = StrReverse(Dir)<BR><BR>Path = Server.MapPath(Dir) & "\"<BR><BR>f = "ms_access.dsn"<BR><BR>DSN = "filedsn=" & Path & f & ";DefaultDir=" & Path & ";DBQ=" & Path & DB & ";"<BR><BR>Set con = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")<BR><BR>con .Open DSN<BR><BR>End Sub<BR><BR>When you unzip the files there is a Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers file called ms_access. What am I ment to do with this? How to I setup the ODBC for PWS i.e. what datasource name should I be using etc.? Also how do I set this up when I eventually post the site on an exteranal server?<BR><BR>Thanks in advance for all your help,<BR><BR> <BR><BR>Ross<BR>If you can will you mail replies to me at rossglover@eircom.net<BR>
