    I hear there are tons of reasons to get this error. Its a problem with opening a connection to your access database. I dont think its the asp+ components but a permissions problem/ or configuration with windows 2000... You could try changing your dsn string to a dsnless connection with ole. Which is better then odbc I hear. try this connection string. It may or may not work but give it a try. comment your old dsn string out just in case.<BR><BR>sDSN = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source="&server.mapPath("yourdbName.mdb")<BR><BR>r eplace the path in the server.mapPath to wherever your db is located. If this doesnt work or is not an option reply to this and reply with "didnt work" or something in that nature so someone else can help.
