    Unanswered: Code Error

    Hi,
    I am trying to access MS-Access Database on a remote server with the code below.

    <%@LANGUAGE="VBSCRIPT"%>
    <!--#INCLUDE virtual="/common/pricelist.asp"-->
    <%
    Dim ConnectionString
    dim oConn

    ConnectionString = "DRIVER={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)};" &_
    "DBQ=\\Server167\BusOps\Maint_ Ren_ Web_ Page_ Upload_DB.mdb;DefaultDir=;UID=;PWD=;"


    Dim objRS
    Set objRS = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset")
    objRS.Open "Select * from [Maintenance Renewal RAW Report] where country = 'AD'", ConnectionString

    %>

    and it gives me the following error.

    Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers error '80004005'

    [Microsoft][ODBC Microsoft Access Driver] The Microsoft Jet database engine cannot open the file '(unknown)'. It is already opened exclusively by another user, or you need permission to view its data.

    /Renewals/testfeb.asp, line 13


    please suggest, how should I reslove it.

    does your provider allow remote database access ? are you accesing this from another website ?

    i know we dont allow remote access from outside of our servers.
    you have to be within the same account to access a database.

    your provider might have it blocked

    Why can't I access a database or text file on another server?
