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
Code\Projects\Web Apps\ConfigureLocalAccessConnection\App_Data\RGN.mdb;User
Id=admin;Password=;

Any ideas what the problem is?

Thanks.
