Dim Con
Set Con = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")

ConStr = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=" & yourmdbpath & ";Persist Security Info=False"

Con.Open ConStr

and thats it!

what i would suggest is that you create a dsn in your pc that hold the connection to your remote system on the network.

And create the connection just like this

Dim cn As New ADODB.Conection
cn.Open "dsnYourName"

Regards

Hi

Just few days back i have done the similar sort of project but instead of using mdb i used the sql server.

I pass the ipaddress of the server usernam eand password too to make the connection.


like the following

connMaster.Open "Provider=SQLOLEDB.1;Persist Security Info=False;User ID=" & UserName & ";pwd=" & TrimPassword & ";Initial Catalog=" & Trim(DBName) & ";Data Source=" & Trim(ipaddress)

The smnssrinivas account has been suspended: the e-mail address provided is invalid and therefore smnssrinivas is not getting any notifications, and cannot participate on the site properly. Hopefully he'll contact us about this soon so we can get his account rectified.

Until then I have to assume that smnssrinivas will not be back, which leaves a number of open questions to be taken care of.

Perhaps, participants can agree what should happen with this question. Should someone get the points? Should it be deleted?
