    Default connection problem....

    &nbsp;<BR>I am trying to set connections to an access database on a file server. I wanted to try to use a DSL-less connection first. Here is how I am doing it on the web server:<BR><BR>CONN_STRING = "DBQ=" & Server.Mappath("/*******/fpdb/******.mdb") & ";Driver={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)};"<BR><BR>So, would it be something like this for the file server??:<BR><BR>CONN_STRING = "DBQ=" & Server.Mappath("/server_name/folder/database.mdb") & ";Driver={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)};"<BR><BR>Server is in the same domain as me....<BR><BR>Any ideas??<BR><BR>THanks<BR> <BR> <BR>
