I am using access file for my develoment and I am using external hosting service to host my site. I have placed the mdb file in the web directory but if anyone gets to know the path of that file, he can download the mdb file by simply typing the url. What can be the alternative solution for the placement of the database file as this could be security threat to my database. can anyone help me about this?<BR><BR>Thanks<BR>Sachin
