    i don't know whether you will agree ,but i have experienced this error hell lots of times,but after doing some R & D,I found there can be so many reasons for it,


    1. if you will Right click on MsAccess,you will see this file in Read Only mode,so you need to remove Read only checkbox

    2.  may be your MsAccess in workGroup and you don't have write permissions,fine you can just make sure that your MsAccess is in standalone modei mean Any user who opens the Access database for update must have full permissions to the folder where the database is located. This is so the Jet database engine can create, update and delete the corresponding .LDB file that is used to track user access to the database.


    difficult to recall every point,just try with this,if still it doesn't work let me know,i will give you some other solutions

    I don't know whether you can set permissions on GoDaddy. You should ask them whether you can do that yourself or if they can do that for you. In shared hosting, sometimes there's a special map for Access Databases, ussualy outside the webroot.

     protected void btnRegister_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
                OdbcConnection objConn = new OdbcConnection();
                string user = "user";
                String strsql = "INSERT INTO UserMaster_Tbl(User_Password,User_Type,User_Status,User_FirstName,User_DOB,User_EmailID,User_Country,User_Sex)VALUES('" + txtpassword.Text + "','" + user + "',1,'" + txtfirstname.Text + "','" + Convert.ToDateTime(txtdob.Text) + "','" + txtemailid.Text + "','" + ddlcountry.SelectedItem.Text + "','" + ddlcountry.SelectedItem.Text + "')";
                objConn.ConnectionString = ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["DBMyFaithConStr"].ConnectionString;
                OdbcCommand objcmd = new OdbcCommand(strsql, objConn);
                objcmd.CommandType = CommandType.Text;
                lblmessage.ForeColor = System.Drawing.Color.Green;
                lblmessage.Text = "Registered Successfully";

    make sure folder in which msaccess resides have read write permission

    No, you need MODIFY permissions on the folder. Instead of all the research, read the link I provided in my previous post!

    And maybe you should do also somes research on SQL injections and Parameterized Queries.


    And when you want to Execute an Insert, use ExecuteNonQuery, instead of ExecuteScalar. And when you want to insert a date without using parameters. you need to enclose them in #, not in ´, which is used for strings...
