Access 2000 connection

I am trying to connect to a MS Access database. Access 2003 installed. Access 2000 file types in the acutal database. It's an old database.

Using connectionString :

conn.ConnectionString =


Source = e:\hack.mdb";

Upon conn.Open(); I get a failure. Could not find installable ISAM.

Any ideas. Yes, this is my first C# code and my frist task is to manipulate a MS Access DB.

ISAM error appears due to wrong/invalid connection string. Just check your connection string again.

Once I focused on the string itself and not registry issues or version conflict issues, I did some more digging into connection strings and found two issues in mine.

I am off an running. Well at least 3 more lines. Which is where my next issue is. Oh how fun learning something new is.

accessing linked Access table from .net
We have an access database with a linked table to MYOB through ODBC. The MYOB table appears in access with a green dot indicating it's a linked table. In Access it all works fine. When we try to get at it through .net, it brings up DB_SEC_E_AUTH_FAILED(0x80040E4D) which as far as I can see indicates authentication failed. Any idea what is required to be able to use it from.Net?

Connecting to Access 2000
I'm running PB 8 and trying to connect to Access 2000 using ODBC. I could connect fine but then I tried creating a new workgroup information file to secure the database. When I did this I could no longer connect through PB. I got an error saying that I didn't have the necessary permissions to access the database. I tried using my admin id that I set up in access. I'm trying to make users log in to access instead of just automatically connecting. Is there something else that I have to do? Hi! Did you set "System Database" in the ODBC profile for your ...

problems with connections to access via ADO.NET in VS.NET
For anyone familiar with this book, I am having trouble with some code in Chris Payne's "SAMS Teach Yourself ASP.NET in 21 Days", which calls for me to use ADO.NET to connect to an Access database I had to create for the "In Review" project after the second week. The code goes like this (within the first subroutine): dim Conn as new OleDbConnection("Provider= Microsoft.Jet.4.0; Data Source=C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\TYASPNET\banking.mdb") Now I've tried this, along with setting up a connection through the server explorer in Visual Studio.NET. When I go to run the page, I...

Using VS.Net Data Connection Tool to Connect to Access Dbase?
I am trying to use the Visual Studio.Net data connection tool to connect to an Access database on a network server, not on my client machine. I've tried everything I can think of but nothing works. Can anyone provide steps/instructions/example/link about how to do this.

The connection tool seems to be oriented to connecting to MSDK on th...

Accessing MS Access
Hi all, This is probably a more DB oriented question, but it came out of the = DBI. I posted a question and have tried several solutions on how to open = up an MS Access DB from the DBI::ODBC but so far have been unable to. = What I had to end up doing was create a DTS that runs every 5 minutes = which copies the table I need from Access and populates a SQL Server = table.

So I was wondering = if there is a better way to get information from Access so I can see it =...
