Could Not Find Installable ISAM

P: n/a
I continue to get the below error message when trying to load a aspx
file. Could someone please point me in the right direction for solving
this? I'm trying to access an access data base and I'm the only one
accessing it at this time. I'm trying to learn this step by step and I'm
at the begining of ADO stuff.

The parameters you used for initializing the "objConn" may be wrong. Could
you list out how you are doing this.

Thanks for your quick reply. The code is below. I've tried it in Visual
Basic and C# and get the same response.

I really appreciate your response and help.

Should this be a connection to banking.mdb?

Should this be a connection to banking.mdb? Yes

I've been trying to implement the following code
Dim cnn As New ADODB.Connection
cnn.Open "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;"
cnn.Properties("Jet OLEDB:Max Buffer Size") = 256

But for some reason I can't get the syntax correct for Visual Basic.

Mark;
I don't know what is going on but no matter what I do I can't get past
the error message. The other thing I was trying to do just complicated
things and really had nothing to do with what I was trying to do. I
wasn't trying to set any properties I was only trying to access the data
and print it out. No matter where I go the code seems to be the same.
I'm totally lost on this and can't move forward until I have an
understanding of what's going on. Have any ideas?

Doug
