what about this
<%
dataSource = "D:\path_to_database.mdb"	
 
 
set Myconn = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
MyConnString = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source="&dataSource&""
MyConn.Open MyConnString
 
'grab data and add it to an array
set rs = MyConn.execute ("SELECT * from myTable")
array1 = rs.getRows()
rs.close
set rs = nothing
 
%>
