how to include the access db when deploying an application?

Hi,

I have made an application that use a access db.
Now I want to deploy the application.
But when i install it to another computer, the application can't find the access database. (not surprising).
So how do i include the access db when installing the application?
And how to tell the application where to find it?

thanks,

VB Newbie

    You "ADD" the database.mdb when you use Package and deployment wizard.

    are you using the package an deploment wizard of vb or another setup generator application

    well try this tell the program to find the database preferably in the aplication folder (programs fileyour application folder) try using this

    data source=app.path & "your database file"

    and wen you are packaging your prog tell set up to deploy the db file to that folder and you will have no problem
