Hi
I am getting an error when I try to insert to my mdb database

my connection is being set up using:

Set OpenDB = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
OpenDB.Open "DRIVER={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)}; DBQ=" & Server.MapPath("../db.mdb")

and i am recieving the following error:

Error Type:
Microsoft VBScript runtime (0x800A01A8)
Object required: 'Provider=MSDASQL.1;E'

Any ideas would be appreciated!

Thanks

Try using OLEDB Connection instead:

Example:

set OpenDB =server.CreateObject("adodb.connection")
OpenDB.Open "Provider=MICROSOFT.JET.OLEDB.4.0;DATA SOURCE=" & Server.MapPath("../db.mdb")

..

Make sure you have the latest version of MDAC installed in your server. Otherwise, try changing the connection string as mentioned by ryancys.

Are you trying to open the connection inside a function?. If so, you need to use the Set keyword to assign the connection to the function..

eg:

Public Function openConnection()
Dim ConnectionString
Dim Connection

ConnectionString="DRIVER={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)};"
ConnectionString=ConnectionString & "DBQ=" & accessdb

Set Connection = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
Connection.Open(ConnectionString)

Set openConnection = Connection '** MAKE SURE TO USE SET KEYWORD **
End Function

Cheers!!
