Default Page Error: Cannot start your application.

I put an access database .mdb file on my server, and when I call th database in .asp classic, I get this error:

Error Type:
Microsoft JET Database Engine (0x80040E4D)
Cannot start your application. The workgroup information file is missing or opened exclusively by another user.

my connection string:
Conn.Open "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=C:\inetpub\wwwroot\myaccount\database;oddli st.mdb;User Id=xxx;Password=xxx;"

Any help is appreciated.

Hello melkin,

I saw your post from a while back now and I think I see the problem, and I wanted to let you know just in case you were still having a problem. In your connection string you specify:

Data Source=C:\inetpub\wwwroot\myaccount\database;oddli st.mdb
Which contains a ";" character in the database file name, and that would be invalid, because the semi-colon is used to terminate parameters in the connection string. So, to fix your problem, you should just be able to fix that path and I think that will take care of the issue.

Anyway, I hope that helps, but if you have more questions, please let me know...

Good Luck,

Geoffrey L. Griffith
