Dear EE Experts,

We would like to ask for tech support on how to locate the path of our access db that is located on this location (\\10.100.128.149\photo).
In whereas the location of the web is located to another server machine.

Please see the attached code...

Hope to hear soon...
<%
connectString = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=" & Server.MapPath("\\10.100.128.149\photo\products.mdb")
	Set myConnection = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
	Set rsProducts = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset")
SeriesID = request.QueryString("SeriesID")
myConnection.Open connectString
sqlContent = "SELECT ID, Series, iPhoto, SeriesID, Type, Remarks, iDownload FROM Products WHERE SeriesID ="&Seriesid
Set rsProducts = myConnection.Execute(sqlContent)
%>

Open in new window

You can't use "Server.MapPath" because that creates a full path on the local server.  Try it without it.

connectString = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=\\10.100.128.149\photo\products.mdb"

You may run into the problem of requiring read/write access to the *.mdb.  It must be located on a 'network file share' with appropriate permissions so you may have to make that a 'mapped drive'.  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/303528

I see, so it's not possible to pull-out from different machine without mapping out the network drive?
