hi. Ive got an access 2000 database running on windows 2k server and ive written an asp page to access the variables. it works fine but when i refresh the page it causes an error which is :-<BR><BR>Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers (0x80004005)<BR>[Microsoft][ODBC Microsoft Access Driver] The Microsoft Jet database engine cannot open the file &#039(unknown)&#039. It is already opened exclusively by another user, or you need permission to view its data.<BR><BR>the asp is working and correct as it works on the real web server so its something to do with my settings im guessing. any ideas how can i stop this as its making my development slow to a crawl!! the web site is at http://www.spunkyfunk.co.uk/reviews.asp<BR><BR>cheers<BR><BR>sermad
