If the database has a workgroup information file (i.e. an MDW file), try the following:
- Click the All tab under the Data Link Properties dialog
- Scroll down to item: Jet OLEDB: System database
- Click the Edit Value... button
- In the Poperty Value enter the full path to the MDW file and click OK
- Clcik on the Connection tab and click the Test Connection to see if the connection succeeds
