Once again I apologize for having to come to you for help.
I have a simple databse application using Access 2000,
VB .Net 2003 Standard and I’m running WinXP-Pro.
After the database connection is established via
the “Server Explorer”, I build the SQL Query in the Query
Builder wizard, but when I click the finish button, I get
the following error:
“The connection could not be opened because of the
following error: Format of the initialization string does
not conform to the OLE DB specification.”
I tried making the same connection using a sample
database, and did NOT get the same error, so I have to
conclude the problem is with my database, but there are
no special permissions or parameters set up on it, so I
have no idea what the problem may be.
Any help offered is greatly appreciated.

I am having the exact same problem but using a Microsoft
Access 2002 database. Have you found a solution yet?
