Hi all,<BR><BR>Try setting a database file&#039;s properties as hidden on ur server if you have desktop access. Then try to download it (on PWS this manages to retain read/write access but stops the download from full path, so i&#039;m wondering if it works online). If you&#039;ve tried this before, please tell me what results you got! If you try it now, remember to back up first (i don&#039;t want to be responsible for taking down your finely crafted asp!) and please reply with results!<BR><BR>Cheers<BR><BR>Alan
