Where is the db file located in relation to your wep pages? It should be in:

<root>/fpdb/yourdatafile.db

It could be the database is located in a protected directory and needs to be moved to a public folder.

To move it easily.

Open Frontpage and open the web that uses this database.

From the root: File -> Inport

Add the database file from it's current location.

Frontpage should prompt you to place it in a folder called "fbpd" (Frontpage will create the folder).

If this is an access database, Frontpage will also handle the ODBC connections.

Hope this helps :)

In any case, this is the result of the NT permissions on the directory containing the database not allowing anonymous access.

Whoever is in charge of configuring your server should be able to help straighten this out.
