i got the following message when i tried to connect to an Access &#039;97 database. What could be the reason?<BR><BR>Microsoft JET Database Engine (0x80004005)<BR>Cannot open database &#039;&#039;. It may not be a database that your application recognizes, or the file may be corrupt.<BR><BR>The following is the command i executed. There is no problem with the database. i changed the name of the databse. Then it was showing an error - the database cannot be found. So it is detecting the database. I created a new database and tried that also. But the same result.<BR><BR>strConn = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;" &_<BR> "Persist Security Info=False;" &_<BR> "Data Source=" & Server.MapPath("abcd.mdb")<BR>set objConn = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")<BR>objConn .open strConn<BR>
