What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Dim oConn

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

oConn.Open "Provider=MS Remote;" & _
                  "Remote Server=http://myServerName;" & _
                  "Remote Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;" & _

if some questions didn't get comments, you can delete them. for those with comments, you will need to ask CS (http://www.experts-exchange.com/jsp/qList.jsp?ta=commspt) to delete them.

sorry, i forgot to mention that the VB6 program is run on client side.  That's mean the connection will establish on client side program.

After i copy paste your code, VB cannot find any Server object.

How to solve this problem?

No problem with this.

error message... something like 'object required' and highlight this 'Set oConn = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")'

I think VB cannot find the 'Server' object.  What other reference do i need to add in to this project?  or i need to install other software?

thanks for reply.

I doubt that you will be able to do it using Brinkster (at least using the general solution)!

You may store an Access database onto your account and you can have ASP pages stock into your accounts that use this database. But it does not seems that VB can access it remotely.

See an example of an ASP page that use a brinkster database at http://www.experts-exchange.com/questions/Q.20141477.html

o.. cannot use VB to access it remotely... that's too bad.
how about VB.Net? ^_^

I don't know ASP.  Anyway, if you found out a way to access Access database remotely, don't forget to tell me. thanks.

Cannot access Access database remotely is because of VB or brinkster web site?

Brinkster. I have sent an e-mail to their support and I am waiting for an answer (I will use this free 30meg storage if it works!).

I had this message from the Brinkster support:

We do not support vb, we support VB .NET. The only connection string we have available to give out is coded in asp. If you need further assistance, please post a message in the forums.
