    hi, i have an access db in a website that i'm trying to connect to and access. the connection string looks like this: var objConnection = new ActiveXObject("ADODB.Connection"); objConnection.Open("Provider = Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source = temp.mdb"); this works when it's run on a my local machine with the file path specified like (Data Source = c:\\myfolder\\temp.mdb). however, i like to find out how data source should be referenced in a website? thanks.

    If you reference in a website, you don't have to include an actual path. If you link to test.mdb it means the database is in your current directory (the directory of the active page). so if it's somewhere else try /databases/test.mdb or perhaps ../test.mdb (this brings you back a folder)
