    DB Connection Problem - Access + .NET

    I'm trying to create a program that connects to a local database (it is selected by the user via OpenFile dialog). Once the file is selected, the user hits the Start Processing button and the connection to the database is created and opened. All this works fine, except when I try to connect to a database that is password protected (not using Workgroups, just a builtin database password), it gives the following error:

    Additional information: Cannot start your application. The workgroup information file is missing or opened exclusively by another user.

    In the connection string I've put in "Password=pass", should I be doing it differently?

    You're using the wrong connection string:

    MattF - Since the start... twitter / github

    When I do that though, it gives me the error saying "Could not find installable ISAM."

    Ah, figured it out. I was using the Jet Engine connection style, I'm guessing it's the DSN less method, and I switched it to a different method and used the UID/PWD options and it works now. Thanks.
