ASP.NET and Access Database problem, please help Albania
  • 12 years ago

    Hi, I'm making a web site with access database and when I try to connect I get this kind of problem

    The Microsoft Jet database engine cannot open the file "path". It is already opened exclusively by another user, or you need permission to view its data.


    Please any idea what to do, I searched in internet, google and so on but no helpfull, so if anyone know where is the problem please write.

    Thank You in advance

    Can you open the access database normally? (ie double clicking the mdb file)

    I'd be looking at whether the account has the right permissions to access the mdb file. You may find that although you (personally) can get to it, the account under which the website runs (usually cannot. That's a starter.
