I am using IIS5.0, asp/vbscript and Dreamweaver 8.  I am using one computer to develpe and text so URL prefix for testing SErver is http://Localhost.mysite/.  I have an access database connected successfully to my site. After adding a recordset the test was successful; it returned all the selected colums.  However, when I tried to view the web page  in internet Explorer the page cannot be open. It returned a 500.100 error. Please advise what could be the problem.

Open IE, Tools, Internet Options, Advanced Options and uncheck the "show friendly http errors" property.  Does the error now give any more information?

Dear Rouche:
Thank you! Following is the error information:
Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers error '80004005'

...[Microsoft][ODBC Microsoft Access Driver] The Microsoft Jet database engine cannot open the file '(unknown)'. It is already opened exclusively by another user, or you need permission to view its data.

/siteName/FolderName/fileName.asp, line 8 ...

Also please see the line 8 code:
Dim rsProduct
Dim rsProduct_numRows

Set rsProduct = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset")
rsProduct.ActiveConnection = MM_connStarlyDB_STRING                     (THIS IS THE LINE 8)
rsProduct.Source = "SELECT * FROM Inventory"
rsProduct.CursorType = 0
rsProduct.CursorLocation = 2
rsProduct.LockType = 1

rsProduct_numRows = 0

This error usually means that you have the database open in Access while ASP is also trying to connect to it.  Close Access down and then run the ASP page.

Thank You! Problem solved!  It's a user permission problem.  However, the access data appears unstable though it can be viewed.  I have to do compact and repair almost each time I try to open the record set.
