Hi
In my ASP.net project I have the following connection string in my Web.config file:
 <add name="WhatEverNameYouWant" connectionString="Provider=Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0;Data Source=Database\GC.accdb;"  />

I then use the following VB code to update the connection
        Dim cs As String = ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings("WhatEverNameYouWant").ConnectionString
        cs = cs.Replace("Database\GC.accdb", Server.MapPath("Database\GC.accdb"))

This all works fine for the \Database\GC.accb online but where should I put my Access database for this to work when debbugging too. In which folder of my project

Put it in the APP_Data folder you can then use the following connection string:

<add name="WhatEverNameYouWant" connectionString="Provider=Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0;Data Source=[DataDirectory]GC.accdb;"  />
