Me again! I am a newbie at ASP and I thank everyone for the wonderful suggestions. Please bear with me! I have ruled out quite a few problems. I have used Response.Write(Server.MapPath()) and the path is correct. The connection to the database is still not opening. Here is the url:<BR><BR><BR><BR>Here is the error message:<BR><BR>C:InetPubwwwrootmodgmodgjavascript ASPguestbook.mdb <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>/modg/javascript/ASP/guestbook-2a.asp, line 14 <BR><BR>Here is my open statement:<BR><BR> objConn.Open("driver={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)};DBQ=" & Server.mappath("/guestbook.mdb"))<BR><BR>Help! Again, the ISP is not knowledgeable in this area, so I am alone if I want this to work.<BR><BR>
