View Full Version : Microsoft Excel Driver Error

01-23-2007, 11:41 AM
Hello All,

I am using an ASP script on my site that reads a microsoft excel file and adds the values to the database (MS SQL Server). The script works completely fine on my LOCAL server, but it shows me the following error when I upload it to the server and try to run it.

Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers error '80004005'

[Microsoft][ODBC Excel Driver]General error Unable to open registry key 'Temporary (volatile) Jet DSN for process 0x1128 Thread 0x2268 DBC 0xd2d0fec Excel'.

/Bacardi/bblcontest/readexcel.asp, line 5

FYI, I am using the following connection string:

Set oConn = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.connection")
oConn.Open "Driver={Microsoft Excel Driver (*.xls)}; DriverId=790;" &_
"DBQ=" & Request.ServerVariables("APPL_PHYSICAL_PATH") & "upload-data\excel.xls;" &_
"DefaultDir = " & Request.ServerVariables("APPL_PHYSICAL_PATH") & "upload-data\"

try using OLE driver instead of ODBC driver.
