proasp_codeclinic thread: ADODB.Connection error '800a0e7a'


Message #1 by "Ollie Naga" <cutenaga@n...> on Sat, 25 Mar 2000 2:58:22
In future please could you quote the full Connection error message you're 
getting? There are a lot of possible erro connections and I'm not 
personally up with all of the 8 digit hexadecimal codes for each one.

Anyway, I've looked it up on support.microsoft.com and it turns out to be 
"ADO Could Not Find The Specified Provider". The article even goes on to 
define the cause as being "The MSDASQL OLE DB provider is either 
unavailable or is not registered. This can be caused by an incomplete 
upgrade or a bad install of the Microsoft Data Access Components (MDAC) 
components."

Looking at your query it seems you still only have ADO 1.5 installed. I 
suggest you need to go back Microsoft and install the latest version of 
MDAC which is 2.5 and is available from:

http://www.microsoft.com/data/download.htm

This should solve your problem. If you still can't then you might want to 
check out the relevant article about this error message. It can be found 
at:

Cheers,
Chris
