    I've been using Dreamweaver MX connecting to an IIS 6 server on
    win2003. I've used an MS Access DB (2000 format) If I use server DNS,
    I connect to my via ASP with out a problem. However, my ISP does not
    support DNS connections, so I've been trying for a few days to get a
    dns less connection work. This is the closes I've got:

    Dim MM_ElimCaAspServer_STRING
    MM_ElimCaAspServer_STRING = Connection = "Driver={Microsoft Access
    Driver (*.mdb)}; DBQ=" + Server.MapPath("/assets/ElimDb/elimCan.mdb")

    I can setup the connection and can test the Record set, it's OK Can
    see the table data in the test in DW. But when I launch the page, I
    get a http 500 error. And again, I had no problem with DNS in the
    same environment.

    Please do not multipost Dave. This is definitely a database-related
    question so .asp.db was the perfect group in which to post it. Posting it
    here as well did not increase your chances of getting an answer (most of us
    subscribe to both groups). On the contrary, if somebody had taken his time
    to answer it here, only to find that it was already resolved in the other
    group, that person may have been annoyed enough to ignore any future posts
    from you, thereby decreasing your chances of getting help in the future.

    There are times when you will not be sure which group is most appropriate
    (again, this was not one of them), and you will want to post a question to
    both groups. In that situation, you should use the cross-posting technique,
    rather than posting the same message multiple times. To crosspost, put
    a semicolon-delimited* list of the newsgroups to which you wish to post in
    the To: header of your post and post it once. It, and any replies to it,
    will appear in all the newsgroups in your list. So, if I reply in .asp.db,
    my reply will also appear here in .asp.general.

    * ... or whatever delimiter is recognized by your news client
