ASP.NET error "Failure creating file."

I am using a program that that opens an Excel file and reads it and writes the contents to a SQL Server database.  The code I am using is as follows:


string connectionstring = @"Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=//server/EstimateWBS/template.xls;Extended Properties=""Excel 8.0;HDR=YES;""";
        using (OleDbConnection connection = new OleDbConnection(connectionstring))
        {
            OleDbCommand command = new OleDbCommand("SELECT * FROM [Sheet1$]", connection);
            connection.Open();    <----------------------- ERROR OCCURS
            using (DbDataReader datareader = command.ExecuteReader())
            {
                string SQLconnectionstring = "Data Source=datasource;Initial Catalog=table;Persist Security Info=True;User ID=userid;Password=password";
                using (SqlBulkCopy copy = new SqlBulkCopy(SQLconnectionstring))
                {
                    copy.DestinationTableName = "WBS";
                    copy.WriteToServer(datareader);
                }
            }
        }

Maybe it's just a typo, but those should be back-slashes in the file's path in the connection string (I assume you're on Windows).

string connectionstring = @"Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=\\server\EstimateWBS\template.xls;Extended Properties=""Excel 8.0;HDR=YES;""";

And this file exists, and whatever user your program/website is running as has rights to the file?

Yes, teh file itself has rights.  Could it possibly be that the fodler on the network does not have sufficient priviliges?
