Hi,,
I am trying to insert  data in access table in my asp.net application.
Locally it is working fine but on my web server it is throwing the above exception.
What is the cause of this?

string connectionString = string.Format(ConfigurationSettings.AppSettings["myconn"], Server.MapPath(ConfigurationSettings.AppSettings["finddb"]));
        OleDbConnection con = new OleDbConnection(connectionString);
        con.Open();

        string name = this.txtName.Text;
        string cname = this.txtCompName.Text;
        string number1 = this.txtContactNumber.Value;
        string email1 = this.txtEmail.Text;
        string address = this.txtAddress.Text;

        string sqlinsert = "insert into MemberData (MName,CName,Number1,Email1,Address)values ('" + name + "','" + cname + "','" + number1 + "','" + email1 + "','" + address + "')";
        OleDbCommand cmdinsert = new OleDbCommand(sqlinsert, con);

well from looking at your query, I cant see anything wrong with it

what datatype is Number1, is it text? if its numeric then remove the single quotes

 string sqlinsert = "insert into MemberData (MName,CName,Number1,Email1,Address)values ('" + name + "','" + cname + "'," + number1 + ",'" + email1 + "','" + address + "')";


Have u looked into using parameters ? have a look at how its done here http://aspnet101.com/aspnet101/tutorials.aspx?id=1

Also, look at this. It is talking about permissions http://forums.asp.net/t/154273.aspx

ya but I am not authorised to do anything on web server.

It is a third party server.

I can create a DSN for access.That's it what I can do there.
