Strange connection problem

There are 2 Access databases, and user chooses to which database to connect to. Now, When connected to database1, everyting works well. When connected to database2, I get following exception:

c:\SomePreviousDatabasePath\database2.mdb is not a valid path. Make sure that the path name is spelled correctly and that you are connected to the server on which the file resides.

Now, the message is very precise, but the problem is I dont use this path anywhere in connection string. What is even more strange, the connection opens without any errors.

myCommand.Connection.Open(); // no exception raised here
OleDbDataReader dr = myCommand.ExecuteReader(); // this line throws exception

MyCommand.CommandText doesnt have any database pats in it, just a reguler SELECT somefields FROM tableName WHERE some condition

Has anyone had this problem before?

Thanks,
Goran

Is the mdb file setup with linked tables maybe?  Are the tables linked from a datasource that no longer exists?

:) ccccc....... Yes, there were some linked tables, although I don't use them, I have added them few days ago just for some testing purpose, and forgot to remove them. I am so filled with work, that I feel all lost. :)

Thanks mkosbie, much appreciated.
