exclusive connection error


Stephen D Cook

When I try to run my application, I get this error. Below is the code
I use as well as the connection string. I believe the error is in the
connection string, but its above my head as far as what is wrong with

Server Error in '/WebApplication2' Application.

The Microsoft Jet database engine cannot open the file 'C:\Documents
and Settings\Owner\Desktop\Personal Databases\7-27-06a1.mdb'. It is
already opened exclusively by another user, or you need permission to
view its data.

I have a form with a drop down list box bound to a column in the
database. I have added a oledbconnection object, a oledbdataadapter
object and a dataset to the form and configured them to the database.

DropDownList1.DataSource = DataSet11

It seems to generate the error when trying to access the database to
fill the dataadapter dataset.

Here is my connection string, sorry its so complicated but I let a
wizard generate it.
