    ok i am onto something - here's the error that i get - Database Results Error
    [Microsoft][ODBC Microsoft Access Driver] The Microsoft Jet database engine cannot open the file '(unknown)'. It is already opened exclusively by another user, or you need permission to view its data.


    any ideas?? i am trying to figure out if anyone has this db open on the network but I don't think so.

    Right post your connection string. Also would it not be easier to have the database on your local machine?

    edit* Your connection string isn't finding the database.
