Hi,

I am using MS Access for my application. But when the transaction is started then I get the following error message :

Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers error '80040e14'
 
[Microsoft][ODBC Microsoft Access Driver] The SELECT statement includes a reserved word or an argument name that is misspelled or missing, or the punctuation is incorrect.

I am using DSN less connection string in ASP page.

I ckecked out everything but it didn't work after changing the name of the variables.

Can someone please help me.

Thanks in advance..

Sorry I forgot to put the connection string and the query being used. They are as follows :

set con = server.createobject("ADODB.connection")
    con.Open "Driver={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)};dbq= --my data path"
if mygroup = "Test Mail" then
     con.close
  con.open "Driver={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)};dbq= my data path"
     mysql = "select email from email"
    set rs = con.execute(mysql)
end if

Try dimming the rs as a recordset

Dim rs
SET rs= Server.CreateObject("ADODB.recordset")
set con = server.createobject("ADODB.connection")
con.Open "Driver={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)};dbq= --my data path"
if mygroup = "Test Mail" then
   con.close
   con.open "Driver={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)};dbq= my data path"
    mysql = "select email.* from email"
   rs.ActiveConnection = con
  rs.Open str, con,1,2
end if

Here is how I am connecting to a database on websites Almost word for word


Dim db
Dim rs
Dim str

db = "driver={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)};dbq= --Data Path--;"
      'OR use this connection string
'db = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source= -- Data Path --;"
SET rs= Server.CreateObject("ADODB.recordset")
       
str = "SELECT Email.* FROM Email"      
rs.ActiveConnection = db
rs.Open str, db,1,2
If rs.Recordcount > 0 then
   rs.movefirst
   response.write rs(0)       
End If
rs.Close
