    Unanswered: HELP!! can not connect to access across network

    Hello, I am using the following connection string, with an access 2000 database file.

    "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0; Data Source = U:\\Ufunc_Database\\dayton.mdb;"

    U is a network drive. I can only connect to the database on machines running windows xp. Other people on the network running win 2000 receive a database error tring to connect to the file. Does anybody know why I can connect with winxp but not win2000? I am using the database file in a simple C++ dialog on network.

    I'm no network guy, but shouldn't you just refer to the UNC, i.e.,
    \\Ufunc_Database\\dayton.mdb, instead of
    U:\\Ufunc_Database\\dayton.mdb
