db engine cannot find the input table or query

Hi,

I have this page that works fine
http://www.cadante.com/cadante_css/vini.asp

Then I need another similar page displaying other products, I proceeded like this:

copied the access table "Vino" to have a new table, which I named "Alimenti", then I changed some field names, then I copied the vini.asp page, and named it "distillati.asp" and changed the line calling the data
Select * FROM Vino ORDER BY TipoVino
to
Select * FROM Alimenti ORDER BY Alimento

I uploaded and when going to
http://www.cadante.com/cadante_css/distillati.asp
I get this:

Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers error '80040e37'
[Microsoft][ODBC Microsoft Access Driver] The Microsoft Jet database engine cannot find the input table or query 'Alimenti'. Make sure it exists and that its name is spelled correctly.
/cadante_css/distillati.asp, line 9

What did I do wrong, and how to fix it?

Thank you

Hmmm ... did you read thru the question? ;)

Yes the "alimenti" has been created, and does have few data in it

And the code in the distillati.asp is the one I also posted:

Select * FROM Alimenti ORDER BY Alimento

yeah...but more information is needed to troubleshoot...;)

check your database connectionstring, whether it is pointing to the right database.

posting the full code will save lot of time keneso :)

To check that I put the
Select * FROM Vino ORDER BY TipoVino

and it works fine, ie the page opens, and when I change it back to
Select * FROM Alimenti ORDER BY Alimento

it returns the error.

I also tried changing the table name in the db, but seems the only table working is the "Vino"

Just copy the below code and paste in the page distillati.asp somewhere before your 'select' query. It will listout the table names in the database. Paste the results here:

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Dim rstSchema, rstStructure
Const adSchemaTables = 20
Set rstSchema = dbobj.OpenSchema(adSchemaTables)
Do Until rstSchema.EOF
Response.Write "Table name: " & rstSchema("TABLE_NAME") & vbCr & "Table type: " & rstSchema("TABLE_TYPE") & vbCr & "<BR>"
response.write rstSchema("TABLE_SCHEMA")
rstSchema.MoveNext
Loop
ListTables = True

Try looking at the "last updated" date of the access DB on the server.  I think with access, if there's open connections to the DB when you try to upload it, it won't let you.

Sorry I missed to reply, the date and time are ok, I also redownloaded the db to make sure, as that was one of the first thing that came to my mind.
