DSN-less connection headache!

server.mappath is used to get the os path to the database, in other words, convert:
database\chef.mdb

to:
E:\Domains\e\everythingforthechef. com-19969252\user\database\chef.mdb

so since you have the fuill path:
E:\Domains\e\everythingforthechef. com-19969252\user\database\chef.mdb

you dont need to use the server.mappath method.


In a dsnless connection, though, you need to also specify the driver that will be used.

the format of the connection string needs follow the following rules:
Provider=<DriverName>;Data Source=<path to database"


change:
MM_eftc_STRING = Server.MapPath("E:\Domains\e\everythingforthechef. com-19969252\user\d atabase\chef.mdb")

to:

MM_eftc_STRING = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=E:\Domains\e\everythingforthechef.com-19969252\user\database\chef.mdb"
