Dear All,
I had wrote a dll which will generate xml in a xxx.asp file (using msaccess xxx.mdb file). However, when the database file is located in a network driver it fail to open it. The encode is:

Sub xxx()
...
Set dbConnection = New ADODB.Connection
dbConnection.Open Application("wsr_db_ConnectionString")
...

End Sub

Application("wsr_db_ConnectionString") = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;" & _
  "Data Source=S:\abc.mdb;" & _
  "Persist Security Info=False"


The error message is :
Error Occur in gm0101.gx0101() : -2147467259:The Microsoft Jet database engine cannot open the file 'S:\eSales.mdb'. It is already opened exclusively by another user, or you need permission to view its data.

The IIS PC's OS is win2k pro and the network driver is a win98 pc. Both PC's file system are FAT32

I don't know why it claim that it is access control issue?

Thanks for the one who can help me!

Try using the UNC name and not the drive letter.

\\SERVER\directory\abc.mdb

Are you sure the drive letter is accessible to others from the web page?
