Hi, guys. How are you?
I am being in a problem for an hour or two.
My asp and asa file used to run perfectlly. I got it through my work experience.
Now I am back to tech. I am trying to see those files.
Both situation, I used and using Windows 2000 server.

When I tried to see those file, error message said:

Error Type:
Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers (0x80004005)
[Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager] Data source name not found and no default driver specified
/FormVal/Main_Form.asp, line 6

Then I thought:

Ah~, I have to change *path* in the my asa file, of course.

I changed

Application("connStringOrders") = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\My Documents\Hiroki\FormVal\orders.mdb;Persist Security Info=False;;Jet OLEDB :Database Password="


Application("connStringOrders") = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\FormVal\orders.mdb;Persist Security Info=False;;Jet OLEDB :Database Password="

My all files including database are sitting in c:\Inetpub\wwwroot\FormVal.

Problem is that I still cannot see anything getting same error message.

And I chekced my asp file line 6 again.
It is like:

Dim msg,conn

Set conn = server.createObject("ADODB.connection") Application("connStringOrders")

Hmm......Please help. Do you see why it doesn't work????

The poster has demanded we remove all his contributions, less he takes legal action.
We have done so.
Now Tyberius Prime expects him to start complaining that we removed his 'free speech' since this message will replace all of his posts, past and future.
Don't follow his example - seek real life help first.

Thanks, mate.
I changed it.
I mean I made database setting and connection directly in asp file. It worked fine.
Thanks a lot.

You need to go into IIS and make sure that the folder you have the global.asa file is defined as an "Application". This doesnt happen by default.

- can't decide? have another drink.
