This is the code to open the database in the module:
Option Explicit Public db As Connection Public Prs As Recordset Public Sub OpenDatabase() Set db = New Connection db.CursorLocation = adUseClient 'db.Open "PROVIDER=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.3.51;Data Source=IPADDRESSwwwpagesbin2250.mdb" ' this is my server IP address 'db.Open "PROVIDER=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.3.51;Data Source=d:naldisplay2250bin2250.mdb" ' this is where it is loaded on my harddisk db.Open "nal3000" 'this is my userDSN Name 'db.Open "d:/inetpub/wwwroot/dark.com/www/pages/Bin2250.mdb" 'this is where the file is loaded on the server End Sub
There are many different things that could be wrong. Your best bet would be to attempt to access the database from a normal client application. In other words, make a simple form-based application and try to make the connection to the database. That way you can find out the problem in an isolated case instead of something running inside IE.
