    Your Access connectionstring should be without the spaces and pwd should be Password.
    VB Code:
    1. cn.Open "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=" & tstDBFullName & ";User Id=admin;Password=;"
    Whats the value for tstDBFullName?

    I had already gone through those steps on the page but thanks anyways.

    The spaces and password did get me out of the ISAM error but now can anyone tell me how to incorporate a workgroupd file here for this authentication coz it says tht the workgroups information file is missing or opened exclusively by another user.

    Re: "Could not find Installable ISAM"

    nevermind the workgroup problem.....I fixed it by adding

    Jet OLEDB:System database=C:\SYSTEM.MDW;" at the end

    so its now
    VB Code:
    1. cn.Open "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=" & DBFullName & ";User Id=manektalau1;Password=;Jet OLEDB:System database=C:\SYSTEM.MDW;"
