OLE DE Initialzation Information - error

HI,

I am loading information from an access database.  After completing the initial development on a local copy of the database, I am attempting to connect to the "live" database on a network drive.  Please note the database is always in use, so therefore will be open by another user.

The database does not have a password

When trying to connect I am getting the following window.

"Please Enter Microsoft Access Database Engine OLE DB Initialization Information, with nothing allowing me to connect.  Any way of getting beyond this?

connection string =


OLEDB CONNECT32 TO [Provider=Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0;User ID=Admin;Data Source=\\10.2.5.225\Hock L1 data\DGS_HB.mdb;Mode=Read;Extended Properties="";Jet OLEDB:System database="";Jet OLEDB:Registry Path="";Jet OLEDB:Database Password="";Jet OLEDB:Engine Type=5;Jet OLEDB:Database Locking Mode=0;Jet OLEDB:Global Partial Bulk Ops=2;Jet OLEDB:Global Bulk Transactions=1;Jet OLEDB:New Database Password="";Jet OLEDB:Create System Database=False;Jet OLEDB:Encrypt Database=False;Jet OLEDB:Don't Copy Locale on Compact=False;Jet OLEDB:Compact Without Replica Repair=False;Jet OLEDB:SFP=False;Jet OLEDB:Support Complex Data=False;Jet OLEDB:Bypass UserInfo Validation=False];

HI,

It is in a readonly folder.  I can navigate to it from my PC via explorer but not via QlikView

from your desktop using the same user? Just changing to a network drive brings the problem? maybe the database is in use? You mentioned it is live.

Hi,

Yes the database will be in use, but I was hoping that I could just read from it?  Its the same as any other database I would be pulling from e.g. Oracle.

Or does jet prevent this?

Thanks
Paul

not 100% sure but i believe that it is a file. so if in use, Qv cannot open it. try creating a copy and connect Qv to it. If that works, then this is the issue.
