I always encounter the problem of  "permission denied" whenever
I try to access MS Access DB thru' Active Server pages.
I found out that I must set "full control" access right  on the WINNT folder in order to access this DB. MAy I know why must I  do it so and is there a way that I dun need to set that folder to "full control"???

The answer is because Access needs permission to create AND DESTROY the lock file (*.LDB) while Access is open.  "Change" permissions does not give you the necessary permissions to delete the file.

Hi dennis, thanks for yr ans.
Sorry that I didn't  make myself clear.

I have allowed the full control on the folder that houses the DB.
But I got permission denied on the WINNT folder which i  must set it to "write" access. I   suspect this is due to temp files created. strange is that I my system temp variable point to
c:\temp, but why the temp file is created under WINNT folder???
