  •  HI All

    I am try to read 2007 access file via VS 2008(C#), i got error  'could not find installable ISAM', i installed access database engine 2007 and  i also installed this component http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=23734

    my problem is : if  i use this my connection string is

    OleDbConnection conn = new OleDbConnection("Provider=Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0; Data Source=C:\\test.accdb;Persist Security Info=False");

    the error "could not find installable isam" will occur.

    But i use another connect string, just use *.mdb file. i can read the data

    OleDbConnection conn = new OleDbConnection("Provider=Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0; Data Source=C:\\dmp1.mdb;Persist Security Info=False");

    but i have to use *.accdb format to read data.

    who can help me?? thanks a lot !!! Many Thanks!!
