Asp Error: Server object error 'ASP 0177 : 80080005'

I get the following error when I try to view a microsoft access application report across our Intranet;

Server object error 'ASP 0177 : 80080005'
Server.CreateObject Failed
/mongoose/comShowRptDetail.asp, line 202
Server execution failed


...can anyone tell me what this is and how I get round it?

Thanks

Please also post the Server.CreateObject() call which is generating this error. Are you sure you all the required dlls on the server?

Some objects cannot be created independently. They must be created in the context of another object.

check if the Component exists and is registered.

To check open "regedit"
and search for the progid.

Also post your code.

How are you fetching the report?.. simply open a connection string to the access database and select the records from the report like:

Set conn = Server.createObject("Adodb.connection")
conn.open"PROVIDER=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;DATA SOURCE=db1.mdb;"
set rs = conn.execute("Select * from ReportName")
if rs.bof and rs.eof then
'no records
else
rs.movefirst
do while not rs.eof
response.write rs(0) & "<br>"
rs.movenext
loop
end if

Access is there. And Access is running properly because we're using it for several other ASP pages (all of which work fine).

Any other idea's?
