I've moved our intranet from Windows 2000 Server to Windows Server 2003 on another box.  I've setup the ODBC connections identical as before, but can't get one connection to work.

Dim rs
Set rs = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.recordset")
Set conn = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
conn.open "Driver={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb, *.accdb)};DBQ=C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\updated\database\test.mdb"

#LINE 86
rs.open "SELECT BLAH BLAH BLAH", "DSN=REPORTS"

The test.mdb has the REPORTS DSN and it has linked tables to an oracle database on DSN PNU.

Here is the error I get:
Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers error '80004005'
[Microsoft][ODBC Microsoft Access Driver] ODBC--connection to 'PNU' failed.
/updated/index.asp, line 86

I know the linked tables are working, because when you open the access DB it brings in data fine on the linked tables.

Got any ideas why it's not working from ASP?
