I'm trying to create a connection to a microsoft access database file (.mdb)
in my App_Data folder. When I go to the solution explorer and try to create
a new connection, I click the change button and select Microsoft Access
Database File. The next screen prompts me to enter the connection string
manually, but I continue to get the error "format of the initialization
string does not conform to specification starting at index 0"
I tried entering the connection string manually and adding the full path to
the access database:
Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=C:\Documents and
Settings\Dwayne\My Documents\Visual Studio 2008\Projects\Sample
Any ideas what the problem is?
