Check your DSN....
It may be misconfigured to use Windows NT security instead of SQL Server standard security,pl change it.

when you open your recordset please use cursor type "lockoptimistic"option so user can edit one record at one time and also check that no one enter with name as some one already present in your site

hi guys,

this is the code where it fails:
< this is a global include file >

DSN = "filedsn=" & sPath & f & ";DefaultDir=" & sPath & ";DBQ=" & Path & DB & ";"

Set con = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")

con.Open DSN <===== HERE!!!

I am increasing the points so that u guys can have a more accurate look..
Thanks!

when you make file dsn then save it where it say to save and only write that which is below for open the recordset

  Set cn = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
  'Open a connection; the string refers to the DSN
  cn.Open  "FILEDSN=MyDatabase.dsn"
then it will not generate any error I also work it

Try a DSN less connection.

frehman,

so are u saying that a DSNless connection has a much lower concurrent capability than one with a ODBC DSN ?? That is why u suggest to me to change from DSNless to using a DSN?

please comment.

Thanks

PS. jkunal: I am already using a DSN-less connection here.

you can access the database from three ways one from without any dsn second is use file dsn and third one is system dsn the code which you paste here is use file dsn . I think you use system dsn any it also connect the database I simply correct you code and write the exact syntx of statment if you find still in accessing the database  problem then let me know at leo_faisal@yahoo.com

thanks, but the problem I discovered was because of the server CPU utilization...using too many resources..
leaving other sites with not enough system resources(including connections)...

another possible reason is the limitation of earlier Jet drivers... documentated in Microsoft site.
