    Default Setting up home PC to test ASP pages

    I run an ASP-based site at work, and would like to set up my home PC to make changes and test them without having to FTP the changes to a live server.<BR><BR>I&#039ve installed Microsoft Personal Web Server on my home PC, but I&#039m still having problems viewing my site locally. I&#039m getting the following error when I load my homepage:<BR><BR><BR>Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers error &#039 80004005&#039 <BR><BR>[Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager] Data source name not found and no default driver specified <BR><BR>/asp/database.asp, line 22 <BR><BR><BR><BR><BR><BR>The page does partially load, but where my scripting begins, the error message appears. How can I get past this so I can serve my site locally?<BR><BR>Thanks!

    Looks like your page probably uses a system DSN and the home PC doesn&#039t have that system DSN cojnfigured properly. On Win98/95/NT/2000/ME you go to control panel and ODBC or Data Sources and configure the connection to your DB. <BR>Hope this helps.<BR>Bill<BR>
