Microsoft JET Database Engine error ''80004005'' System resource exceeded.

This error will show up from time to time in a shared web hosting environment for any website that is using a Microsoft Access database. This error does not mean that the webserver has run out of system resources. This is a generic error when using Access databases.

Causes for this error are:

1) connecting to the Access database using odbc instead of using the more reliable OLEDB JET driver.

2) running an extreamly large query, which Access can not deal with.



*OLEDB - JET connect string

"Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=E:\www\domain.com\data\user.mdb;"
