Hi there,

You can't use Set to assign a string to a variable. You should use Set for Objects only. So I guess you need something like this:

Dim objConn
Dim connString
Set objConn = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
connString = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0; Data Source=" & _
objConn.Open connString
