Server.MapPath("mytestdatabase062509.accdb")

or

Server.MapPath("mytextdb.mdb")

Or whatever your database is named ... search on Server.MapPath for syntax examples, your's is munged badly.

I think this should solve the problem provided the mdb file is named mytestdatabase062509.accdb and resides in the root folder.
sConnString = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=" &_
Server.MapPath("/mytestdatabase062509.accdb.mdb") & ";" &_
"User ID=********;Password=*******"

.accdb is the extension for an ACCESS 2007 (ACE format) database.

.mdb is the extension for earlier version (2003 or before, Jet format) database.

Sorry I did not know that. Thanks for the information. I have not used Access 2007.

My suggestion here: http:#a24731833 would solve this issue. The syntax was wrong; I corrected it.
