Help with an ASP database connection

I'm desperate for help on this. I'm creating a dynamic website using dreamweaver. The web hosting company imported my data to My SQL, and gave me the connection info. It is being hosted on an ASP.net server. I've successfully made the connection to the database file, but the data does not show up. When I try to do a dataset, it says that there are no tables in that database file. I've complained numerous times to the web hosting company but they say that it's fine on their end, and it must be my problem. They have not been very helpful. I don't know enough about this to begin to trouble shoot it. I was able to create a local DNS, on my machine, but when I try to do a DNS less connection on their server (using my original Access database) it doesn't work either. I don't know enough about this to figure out where I'm going wrong. Anyone have any suggestions?

Re: Help with an ASP database connection

Hi Tzipdee

This post is probably too late but...

Chances are you are using a DSN to connect (meaning you need to have ODBC set-up on the server at the webhost with that system DSN) what you should be using is using ADO.NET DSN less connection string and it will depend on what your web host gave you - http://www.connectionstrings.com/?carrier=mysql is a good resource for the different kinds of strings you can use

Cheers
