    I have a web service that uses an access database. On the local machine it
    works fine but if i try to open the real database on the server it says the
    path is not valid.
    For local access is us a user for the local box but for the server access
    it use impersonation of a domain user with access to database directory. I
    am pretty sure this is a file permission issue but I have change all of the
    security settings I can find and it doesn't help.

    Thanks, Tim

    If you impersonate and access a remote resource you have to configure delegation.
