This has happened to us lots of times. For a while every time when I
uploaded a new database file it would do this.

Try compacting and then repairing the database through ODBC settings.

We found that restarting the server also fixed it - but you don't want to do
that every time you upload a new db.
An 'real' answer was never found as to why it was doing it, so I'm anxious
to see what the rest thing.

Provider error '80004005'

Unspecified error

E:\INETPUB\MEPANTRY\ORDER\../include/dataconn.asp, line 11

Provider error? Wtf? Anyway, line 11 is the connection attempt using the
connection string:

"DRIVER={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)};DBQ=" &

What's the deal. search.microsoft.com is no help at all. Note that all i did
was import some data and re-upload. I tried repairing, no help.
