Retrieving data from ACCESS database

3 New Member
I have a sample ASP code which should get the records from a table in ACCESS database. However, while running the page I am getting the following error:

"Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers (0x80004005)
[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."

The code which I have is:

Dim rs
Set rs = Server.CreateOb ject ("ADODB.Records et")

rs.Open "My Table", "DSN=My Database"

While Not rs.EOF
Response.Write "ID : " & rs("id") & "<br>"
Response.Write "First Name : " & rs("first_name" ) & "<br>"
Response.Write "Last Name : " & rs("last_name" ) & "<br>"
Response.Write "<br>"


Set rs = Nothing

Can anyone please help me rectify this??

Please check if the table you are updating or database(.mdb file) is opened
previously. Close the database in order to remove the error.

do you have a database connection object? (it isn't in the code listed above) I think your "set rs..." line might be technically incorrect without it. The syntax should be something like this:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. Dim rs, conn
  2.     set conn = server.createobject("ADODB.Connection")
  3.     conn.open "DSN=myDatabase"
  4.     Set rs = Server.CreateObject ("ADODB.Recordset")
  5.     rs.Open "SELECT * FROM myTable", conn
I always do something more like this. I realize that there are potentially many different ways to do this, but I get few errors connecting this way. Let me know if this helps.
