DSN to DSNless leads to error

DSN to DSNless leads to error

DSN to DSNless leads to error

I am trying to move from a DSN connection string to a DSNless connection and for some reason I get an error when I try to do it.
My DSN connection was this
  Dim objpharws50
  Set objpharws50 = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
  objpharws50.Open "DSN=prescript"

and I have changed to this

strConnection = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=" & _
Server.MapPath(".\electronic.mdb") & ";"
Set objpharws50 = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
objpharws50.Open strConnection

The part of my code that I now get an error on is this line
rscheckpass.open strSQL, objpharws50, 3,3
in the code below????

Set rscheckpass = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset")
strSQL = "SELECT names.password, names.surname, names.ward" & _
        " From names" & _
        " WHERE names.password= '" & session("password") & "' AND names.surname= '" & session("surname") & "';"
        rscheckpass.open strSQL, objpharws50, 3,3
    If rscheckpass.eof then    
Do while Not rscheckpass.eof
Session("ward") = rscheckpass("ward")
end if    
        set rscheckpass = nothing

RE: DSN to DSNless leads to error

the error is rather unhelpful and is simply

error '80004005'
/hidden23.asp, line 15

with no other information
