Not a valid account name or password (MS Jet 4.0 OLE DB Provider)

Not a valid account name or password (MS Jet 4.0 OLE DB Provider)

Post by SSP » Fri, 04 Jul 2003 15:13:03


Hi All,

I am having this weird problem that just arose without warning.

Problem:
I am not able to connect to any of my Access databases using "Microsoft Jet
4.0 OLE DB Provider".
I had no problems before but since last Saturday, I've been getting a "Not a
valid account name or password" error.

I have no problems connecting using the "MS OLE DB Provider for ODBC
Drivers" or any other methods.

Anyone's got any ideas :-(

I don't know OLE DB or ODBC, but: see if anyone has used the "Wokgioup
Administrator" program to select a different "workgroup file" on the
PC. And/or, compare all files with extension MDW (so-called
"workgroup" files) with their backup versions (you do hav those,
right?) to see if any have been added/changed/deleted.

HTH,
