Unanswered: test connection failed because of an error in initializing provider. Not a valid file
I am trying to learn database stuff to put onto our website and I'm having a problem. I created a database and saved it. I created a Data Access Page and tossed an "add record" button on it. I changed the page properties such that the connectionstring is http:\\188.8.131.52\data\db1.mdb and so that DataEntry is set to true and UseRemoteProvider is set to true. Now, I always get the error about not initializing provider (see subject). The web server is IIS loaded on my firewall. The Data Access Page is in the root directory and points to the database in the data directory. The firewall/webserver has Access installed on it and is running Windows 2000. Can anyone please tell me how to fix this.
