8. How do I create a DSN-less connect to my Access database?

   - Upload your .mdb file to the Data folder parallel to the wwwroot folder.

- Create the server connection object:
   Set adoCon = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")

- Define the path:
   strDbPath = "d:\websites\yourdomain.com\data\yourdatabase.mdb"

- Define the driver and connection:
   strCon = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0; Data Source=" & strDbPath

Note: Your database can reside anywhere inside your domain; placing it in the Data folder outside of the wwwroot folder is more secure. If your database resides in different folder under your wwwroot, adjust the path to: strDbPath = "d:\websites\yourdomain.com\wwwroot\datafolderpath\yourdatabase.mdb"
