Default trouble

I'm trying to drag the latest articles from a databass. I keep getting the error:

Microsoft JET Database Engine error '80004005'

'\\nas03\domains\h\hackersons.com\user\htdocs\db\n ews.mdb' is not a valid path. Make sure that the path name is spelled correctly and that you are connected to the server on which the file resides.

/databass/site/index_test.asp, line 15

how do i check i've got the right info?
I've taken the files from another site and am fiddling with the code to get it working on my site.

I think what you need to do is list the path as the file extension below the domain name. In other words, like this:

Let us know if that works. :)

Are you sure that the IIS account has access to this shared file?

Usually, IIS runs in the context of the IUSR_MachineName account which is a local account and therefore has no rights to access this share. Either change the rights for the current user, or use a different user to run the webserver. Alternatively, you can create a Virtual Directory, called Databases for example which points to your network share. You can run this VD under the context of a different user, thereby acquiring the right permissions to access the database.
