ERROR:COULD NOT FIND INSTALLABLE ISAM

P: n/a
When using ADO.NET, here is my code to bring in a table from EXCEL:
Dim sConnectionString As String = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;" _

& "Data Source=C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\ExcelData.xls;" _

& "Extended Properties=Excel 11.0;"

When it tries to OPEN my connection, I receive the following error:

COULD NOT FIND INSTALLABLE ISAM!

PLEASE HELP!

Hi,

check out :
http://support.microsoft.com/default...b;EN-US;209805

It could also happen due to the default security level of ASP.NET
default user. the default machine user is prohibited to access registry
and ISAM defined in registry.

I ran into the same problem. An almost identical winforms program
works fine. So I (temporarily) made ASPNET a member of Administrators,
VS Developers, and Debuggers (or somethink like that). Still no good.

The KB mentions editing the registry but since the win app has no
problem, I don't see this as being the problem.

Any suggestions?
