'c:\data\acm.mdb' is not a valid path. Error

'c:\data\acm.mdb' is not a valid path. Error

'c:\data\acm.mdb' is not a valid path. Error

(OP)
I have this error coming up all the time, and I see what the problem is that the folder path my side isnt the same server side, I think anyway. can anybody help.

CODE

Microsoft JET Database Engine error '80004005'

'c:\data\acm.mdb' is not a valid path. Make sure that the path name is spelled correctly and that you are connected to the server on which the file resides.

/CMS/www/common/dbconn1.asp, line 19

RE: 'c:\data\acm.mdb' is not a valid path. Error

Hi,

Where does acm.mdb reside?

What application were you running when you got this error message?

Hi,
 This is the code

CODE

appurl = "/CMS"

dbPath = "\data\acm.mdb"

imageuploadpath = Server.MapPath(appurl & "\www\userimages\")
imagewebpath = appurl & "/www/userimages/"

set whtConn = server.createobject("adodb.connection")
whtConn.Open "PROVIDER=MICROSOFT.JET.OLEDB.4.0;DATA SOURCE=" & dbPath

Acm.mdb resides on this path:

http://mysite.co.uk/CMS/data/acm.mdb

As for application, I'm not exactly sure what you mean.

"As for application, I'm not exactly sure what you mean."

When you enter your code and run, what application are you in?  It's not NotePad.

Sorry no its Dreamweaver, I was actually thinking you meant something different

RE: 'c:\data\acm.mdb' is not a valid path. Error

I'd say it's an asp skript, perhaps IIS. The site may be made with Dreamweaver as your development environment.

Try

dbPath = Server.Mappath(appurl & "\data\acm.mdb")

Anyway, the Server.Mappath() function is there to map relative paths to their absolute analogon at the server, and you already use it for images.

Bye, Olaf.
