you have put the mdb file on the same application root with code files.

But you might have hardcoded the path of the mdb file in your application, due to which it searches for the file in the same location... which might not be available in the other machines.

Try specifying a relative path for the mdb file in your application. Or you can use an environment variable to specify the root directory of your application.

You can also use AppDomain.CurrentDomain.BaseDirectory to get the root directory of your application.

You can post the lines near to the error, specially where you build the filepath

this the connection string i used :
string ConnString="Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source='" + AppDomain.CurrentDomain.BaseDirectory.ToString() + "\\LeaveDB.mdb'";
            OleDbConnection connDB = new OleDbConnection(ConnString);
            connDB.Open();
            OleDbDataAdapter daUsersData = new OleDbDataAdapter("SELECT * FROM UsersData",connDB);

still not working after deploying

try this
string dbPath = Path.Combine(AppDomain.CurrentDomain.BaseDirectory, @"LeaveDB.mdb");
string ConnString="Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=" + dbPath;
