    Problems reading Access DB w/ ASP

    Im just learning ASP...testing in ACCESS (I understand the pitfalls of this for the web)

    Here's my error I keep getting:

    Error Type:
    Microsoft JET Database Engine (0x80004005)
    The Microsoft Jet database engine cannot open the file 'c:\inetpub\wwwroot\test1.mdb'. It is already opened exclusively by another user, or you need permission to view its data.
    /press.asp, line 37

    --However' it's not open. And all the permissions
    seem to be set to read it..
    Anything Im missing?

    Ditto. I've had this error a few times before, so post your code and I'll help you out. Maybe I'll do a search on it in the meantime.

    Well....I finally got it to work.

    I had to change some internal permissions on the table. It appeared that all users were assigned permissions, but after I created a new user called
    "Everyone" with all read permissions it worked.
