This should be fun.  I am trying to help someone set up a database.  They downloaded this program.  Now when they try to access it online, they get this message: ODBC driver does not support the requested properties.  And the line that it is calling is:  
RS3.Open GeneratedSQL,Conn3,adOpenKeyset,adLockReadOnly 'both keys are to be variables

Using MS Access 2000 - maybe it just needs to be updated?  Thanks!

what are you doing with the GeneratedSQL Script?
is it a insert statement?
if yes then use
Conn3.open GeneratedSQL

Its a Server Side Error. Not your Side.

You're using ODBC?  Try using OLE...
"Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=" & server.mappath("db.mdb") & ";Jet OLEDB:Database Password="

adilkham when I changed it to: RS3.Conn3.open GeneratedSQL,adOpenKeyset,adLockReadOnly, I received this error:  Object doesn't support this property or method: 'RS3.Conn3'

GaryC123 - I have no idea.  This program that she bought seems to have have a bunch of problems.  Right now, it seems it is:
DataSource3 = "Driver={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)}; DBQ= "& DB_Path &"WebStore/Databases/ShopDB.mdb;"
Apparently there are quite a few different connections that it is trying to establish

Here are some more lines above:
Set Conn3 = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
Set RS3 = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.RecordSet")
RS3.CursorType = adOpenStatic
Conn3.Open DataSource3
RS3.Open GeneratedSQL,Conn3,adOpenKeyset,adLockReadOnly 'both keys are to be variables
Conn3.Close
set rs3 = nothing
set Conn3 = nothing

GaryC123, when I used your, I get: Operation must use an updateable query (for RS3.Open GeneratedSQL,Conn3,adOpenKeyset,adLockReadOnly)

adilkhan, when I inputted:  RS3.Conn3.execute(GeneratedSQL),adOpenKeyset,adLockReadOnly - the error was:  Object doesn't support this property or method: 'RS3.Conn3'

GaryC123, using: RS3.Open GeneratedSQL,Conn3,2,2, this is the message:  [Microsoft][ODBC Microsoft Access Driver] Operation must use an updateable query

Make sure the IUSR account has write permissions on the folder where the db resides - the error means the db/folder is read only so when you try to update or insert a record you get the above error.
Right click the folder, Properties, Security tab, and select the IUSR account or whatever account name you use and set write permissions

Hm, well it does the folder does have read/write for anonymous settings.  Is that what you mean?

I actually chose secure read-write & that worked.  I also left the changes the way we have talked about.  I wil change them back to check - (there are too many places in this program to change it) :-/

Thanks!
