Dear All,

I have big problem raised when I connect to access database by ASP.  When I updated two records on the access database, Error should be occurred at either updating process with following message prompted:

[Microsoft][ODBC Microsoft Access Driver]General error unable to open registry key"SOFTWARE\ODBC\Brazos volatile counter"

I would like to ask whether access database can be updated/accessed by two users at the same through webpage??

So, any solution to solve such problem? How can I change the program code to allow users to update the access database at the same time??
It's quite urgent, Anyone can help me!  Thanks a lot

It sounds like you have aregistry permissions problem.  I recommend you sue a DSN-less connection instead.  Here is an example:

oConn.Open "Driver={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)};" & _
           "Dbq=c:\somepath\mydb.mdb;" & _
           "Uid=admin;" & _
           "Pwd=;"

this sounds as if there is another issue, not related to Access---What is "Brazos volatile counter"?

It saounds as if you have some other software nvolved, that has a limit on the number of active "connections"  Is this a possibility?

That would be the DSN name...
