Hi Experts...

I am new to programming and VB.NET

I am developing a reservation software based on an access database.

Before to go ahead with the development I have a doubt.

I am using a connection builded with the Visual studio OleDbDataAdapter Wizard for all my forms which look like this..

ACCESS.C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\Desktop\privato\UNI YEAR 2\Summer 2005\Reservation

When I will deploy the application with Visual Studio, will the database connection works on the client machine ??

The Access database is in the same folder of the application, but NOT in the appliction folder generated by Visual Studio

Do I ahve to use another kind of connection (e.g relative path) and if so how and where ??
