    can you share connection string here

    Make sure has a DSN named in connectionstring on machine.

    To check that, simply go to :

    Start-->Programs-->Administrative Tools-->Data Source(ODBC)
    then click the DSN tab and *look* if its there...

    Accepted Solution

    What this error means is that the data source (ie. database name and/or server address) is wrong in your connection string. Look at your connection string then make sure that you have the server and database named correctly.

    If you need more help than that then post your complete page code and we can help you correct it.
