And what is the connection string you are using to connect?

objConn.Open "WHAT?"

Data source name not found and no default driver specified is your error.
Did you search the web for that?

I believe the name you're looking for is Chili!Soft ASP written by Sun.
This might be helpful... http://docs.sun.com/db/coll/s1_asp4_en

BTW... I don't think MS Access runs on Linux even with Chili!Soft so finding
a driver might be difficult unless things have changed recently. You'll
most likely have to use mySQL which probably came with the hosting account.
Or, consider using the OS and webserver it was written to run on,
Windows/IIS.

Here's another important fact: If you're going to write in ASP, then you'll
get better support from someone who supports it running on an OS it was
originally written for rather than the open source boys. If you're stuck
with Linux, then perhaps considering PHP and mySQL would be a better option
and your support would most likely be a lot better too, maybe. (O:=

Good luck!
