Did you try using MS remote provider..
http://www.able-consulting.com/MDAC/ADO/Connection/MSRemote.htm

Other wise, you would need to have a share created on your server and sufficient permissions have to be given to the IUSR Account on the Share....

           "Remote Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;" & _
           "Data Source=c:\somepath\mydb.mdb", _
            "admin", ""


Error Type:

"Data Source=c:\webs\public\db_test.mdb", ""

What Is Threat Intelligence?

Threat intelligence is often discussed, but rarely understood. Starting with a precise definition, along with clear business goals, is essential.

I guess thats because you are not able to connect to the server.. does the db have a uid and password?..

I personally havent used MS remote.. so i couldnt really tell... Did you try the other option of mapping the folder to your server?

Cheers!!

There is no username and password, I have removed that part and sorted out the previous problem. Now I get the following:

Microsoft ADO/RDS error '800a20ff'

Internet Server Error.

/webnews.asp, line 31

is this a server setting?

Dim oConn2
Set oConn2 = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
oConn2.Open("DRIVER={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)}; DBQ=HTTP://SERVER/TEST.MDB")
