     I am just figuring out ASP.net and am testing on Windows 7 Ultimate using Visual Web Develope Express 2010 and Microsoft Access 2010. Staying stictlly with what VWD gives me, no additional coding, i connect to Access dB and then drag a table onto a form and test through the built in VWD web server and all is well.

    Next i try to view via my home server, IIS that comes with Win 7, and get error message "Unrecognized database format 'X:\Data\Library\M-R\Passwords\pass2.accdb'"

    Any suggestions on what need i do to come closer to a solution will make for a merry christmas for me

    Yes the connection string is correct and yes i have installed the newest Access database drivers i could find.

    Yes i have done the database repair offered by Access. And No it still does not work.

    However i converted into mdb format and it works fine. So i guess i have a piece missing to make asp.net 4 happy with accdb however i do not have a clue what it is.
