My MDB file is on the same server. I took it out the "root" of the web server so it wouldn't be accessible directly via the web. So the structure is :

IIS ROOT :
d:\inetpub\mywebsite

my ASP are in a virtual directory at :
d:\inetpub\mywebsite\asp
and my database is at :
d:\inetpub\mydatabase

And no, I have no reason to use the DSN. But to explain, I'm mainly a project manager and a multimedia programmer, with only basic knowledge of SQL and until that project, no knowledge of ASP. So I had a freelancer coding my asp pages for me. I did modify them after but the bulk of the code was coming from someone else, who's used to work with MSQL.

So you are saying I don't need a DSN ? I can simply connect on the DB without it ?

thanks again for the help, you have no idea how much it's appreciated.

Pat
