ODBC Text driver Error

I have a web app that allows the upload of a csv file that is then processed by the web server.  The script works, but, it takes a very long time, so I am attempting to place it in a new thread.  When I do that, I receive the following error.

System.Data.Odbc.OdbcException (0x80131937): ERROR [HY024] [Microsoft][ODBC Text Driver] '(unknown)' is not a valid path. Make sure that the path name is spelled correctly and that you are connected to the server on which the file resides. ERROR [IM006] [Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager] Driver's SQLSetConnectAttr failed

Here is the code.

Dim connODBC As New System.Data.Odbc.OdbcConnection("Driver={Microsoft Access Text Driver (*.txt, *.csv)};Dbq=" & ShortCuts.RootPath & "Assets\87\adults\;Extensions=csv;")
            Dim sql As String = "SELECT  RIGHT('00000000000'+ [ID],12) as [legacyId], " & _
            "[Service Unit], " & _
            "Troop, " & _
            "[Last Name], " & _
            "MI, " & _
            "[First Name], " & _
            "Street, " & _
            "Apt, " & _
            "City, " & _
            "State, " & _
            "Zip, " & _
            "[Home Phone], " & _
            "[Work Phone], " & _
            "Email, " & _
            "Race, " & _
            "Ethnicity, " & _
            "PC " & _
             "FROM adults.csv"

            Dim da As New Odbc.OdbcDataAdapter(sql, connODBC)
            connODBC.Open()

The error occurs on the Open() command.

The only other thing that might be playing into this is the file is stored on a UNC path.

The script is running on IIS 7, .net 4, windows 2008 server (64bit).  The file server is Windows 2003 server.

Thanks for your assistance.

What does the value of connODBC's connectionstring property look like?

The connection string is

Driver={Microsoft Access Text Driver (*.txt, *.csv)};Dbq=\\10.0.1.41\WebShare\Web40\Assets\87\adults\Assets\87\adults\;Extensions=csv;")

Assuming that this code worked before putting it in a new thread, It sounds like the Context that the new thread is running under does not have access to the shared computer.

So how do set the context of the new thread?  Or determine why it doesn't have permission?

Hopefully we are on the right track:
The first question is if the Identities are different in the main thread, and the new thread.
You can inspect the identities using,
System.Security.Principal.WindowsIdentity.GetCurrent().Name.ToString()
or
System.Threading.Thread.CurrentPrincipal.Identity.Name.ToString()

I am not sure how you are creating your new thread. But if you want the new thread to impersonate the calling thread, these links may help.
