Permissions problem

I am attemptimg to do a web app for the first time & need to get data from an access db.  Actually, I wanted to use mySQL, but our buddy Bill won't let the ODBC work with the standard edition.

On NT2000 I get this error:

The Microsoft Jet database engine cannot open the file 'D:\Inetpub\wwwroot\WebApplication1\Restaurant.mdb'. It is already opened exclusively by another user, or you need permission to view its data.

What do I need to set?

Make sure the mdb file is not opened. Close it. Also make sure IUSR_COMPUTERNAME has permission on the mdb file.

Also, take note that you not have this file open it in design mode in other session.

THis error usually occurs when you have security set up with in the access database and the *.mdw is not refernced to the correct location in the connection string.  In this case you need to refernce the mdw database in your connection string:

"Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Persist Security Info=False;Data Source=" & strLocFilDB & ";Jet OLEDB:System database=" & strlocSystemDB & ";User ID= '" & strUsr & "';Password='" & strPwd & "'"
strLocFilDB is the location of the actual database
strlocSystemDB is the location of the MDW database

Hope this helps
