I have a connection string for MS access database defined as follows:

        oAccessConnection.ConnectionString = String.Format("Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source={0};", sMdbPath)

When trying to open it I get a problem caused by a semicolun in the sMDBPath. I need to keep these folders without renaming, How to prevent the connection from considering the semicolun as a connectionstring attributes separator, and deal with it as a normal character. Thanks
