Dreamweaver and DSN

Hi,

Can someone help me?..I'm dying with this problem for a week?

I've got a shared hosting account, which creates a file DSN automatically to access the database.
The problem is, They don't allow to remotely set up the connection. So in the case of Dreamweaver , I can't  remotely connect and select the file DSN to create the connection string file.

so what I've done is , I've created the DSN file locally in same name which my hosting account has and then selected that DSN file to create the connection string file but my asp files are not running with that connection.

I think I need to change path of the DSN file, that causing for the problem.

These are the links about the DSN file. please have a look on it, if it doesn't make sense.

What can I do further?...

This is the connection file the Dreamweaver has created
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
 <%
' FileName="Connection_odbc_conn_dsn.htm"
' Type="ADO"
' DesigntimeType="ADO"
' HTTP="false"
' Catalog=""
' Schema=""
Dim MM_conn_ecom_STRING
MM_conn_ecom_STRING = "dsn=access_ecom;"
%>
----------------------------------------------------------------------------



Thanks
Regards

There wasn't a need to open another question. Just respond to your previous question
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Web_Development/Software/Macromedia_Dreamweaver/Q_22996486.html

Have you tried a dsnless connection? I would suggest using that if you can't get the dsn to work properly.

Here is a tutorial on how to do that
http://www.geekpedia.com/tutorial141_How-to-setup-DSN-Less-Connection-in-Dreamweaver-MX.html

I also posted how to find the path of your mdb in your other post.

I can try dsnless connection but I need to make sure that, Is it suitable for E-commerce site?...

Also I've seen ur answer earlier. but it doesn't match to my question.
I've already knew my database path. My actual question is, How do I intergrate the DSN connection in connection string file?.....Because I've use Dreamweaver to generate connection file.
So I need to manually edit the connection file to reference the DSN file, which is in my hosting account.
Does it make sense?....

Thanks

Did you create a DSN Connection on your local machine? (Sorry, I am still having a hard time understanding what exactly you are asking). Are you trying to access your website database from your local machine?

I would really suggest creating the dsnless connection - It is more reliable, faster, and less confusing.

Also check this link out - it is about godaddy dsn and dreamweaver
