    probably a directory permissions problem.<BR><BR>the directory in which your Access database resides must be set to allow all to read/write/etc to it. in other words, give all permissions to all users on that directory.<BR><BR>

    Default Similar problem

    What (rxd) etc rights are needed?<BR>I am trying to access a directory below inetpub through a FP web set to "Authenticate" . This reads a mdb in a subdirectory of this web (viewable but not part of it) with permissions set to "change" for an "All" NT group with me as an administrator.<BR><BR>I can change records no probs, but other users can not. I dont think FP permissions are effecting it, but I cant be sure.<BR><BR>Im using a file DSN too with the same error message, system gives similar problems, but I think the message is more like "database is locked"<BR><BR>What exact permissions can I give?

    Yeah, It is the directory permission which causes the problem. But how do I prevent other web site operators on my webserver in viewing my directory which has the accessdb. If I set the permission to read/write access to all users. One could easily write a ASP file to list/write/change the database. Is there any cure for this?
