Default finding database with server.mappath

Hello There,
Hope you can help me.

I use the below code in ASP.NET to set my connectionstring to an ACCESS database.

MyCon = New OleDb.OleDbConnection()
        MyCon = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=" & server.mappath("MyDbase\Crest_Comp.mdb;")

I'll get the blue line under server, what's wrong in this picture?

Do I need some extra imports other then Imports System.Data.OleDb.OleDbConnection?

Thank you for trying.

Frank

Where is this code? It sounds to me that this code is in a helper class. "Server" will only be useful within the context of a page or user control class.
