Try something like this. Make sure to replace YourAccessFileName and YourQueryName with proper values ...

<%@ Language=VBScript %>
<%option explicit%>
<%
      Response.Buffer = false
%>
<%
      dim oConn, oRs

      sConnectionString = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=" & Server.MapPath("YourAccessFileName") & ";User Id=admin;Password=;"

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

      Call oConn.Open(sConnectionString)

      set oRs = oConn.Execute("select * from YourQueryName")
%>
<HTML>
<HEAD>
</HEAD>

<BODY>

<%
      Response.Write("<table>")
      while not oRs.EOF
            Response.Write ("<tr>")
            Response.Write ("<td>")
            Response.Write (oRs(0)) 'Here you can also use column name i.e. oRs("ColumnName0")
            Response.Write ("</td>")
            Response.Write ("<td>")
            Response.Write (oRs(1)) 'Here you can also use column name i.e. oRs("ColumnName1")
            Response.Write ("</td>")
            Response.Write ("</tr>")
            Call oRs.MoveNext()
      wend
      Response.Write("</table>")
%>

</BODY>

</HTML>
<%
      set oRs = nothing
      set oConn = nothing
%>

I don't know what is wrong I have put in the code that you gave me but it is now giving me an unspecified error that states on the line where I have the previous connection opening but the funny thing is I have it closed, what could the problem be, I closed the connection and set it equal to nothing.

Very difficult to guess without seeing the code. Try this in a new asp file to make sure this code is correct. You can combine this code into the first one after you are certain that it works.
