Problems accessing a MySQL database via an Access linked table

P: n/a
Hello

In order to perform a hetrogeneous join (I think that's what they're called)
between MySQL and another database, I've created an Access database
containing linked tables from each datasource.

I create the linked tables without any problems, clicking on "save password"
before selecting the desired tables. I can then access both tables fine from
within the Access GUI.

The problem starts when I then try to access this data from my ASP.NET web
application - classic ASP works fine but .NET gives me...

ERROR [HY000] [Microsoft][ODBC Microsoft Access Driver] ODBC--connection to
'MyDSN' failed.

From then on, the Access database remains locked (.LDB file in the same
directory) and I get a similar error when I run my ASP page, which
previously worked.

Any suggestions would be gratefully received.

Can you supply your code?

Also, can you successfully hit the source databases wthout using the middle
database from your .Net application?
