I'm having a really hard time displaying the structure of my database using INFORMATION_SCHEMA. Can this be used with Access? I've used it before for sql databases but when I try it with this access one I get an error message telling me: Can't find file c:\...\INFORMATION_SCHEMA.mdb

I'm hoping maybe there's another command that works just as well or some other way to get around it.

I'm using Visual Web Developer 2005 Express
and my .aspx pages are coded using VB so any insights would be awesome!

Thanks much,

Flowing Fount of Yak Knowledge

there is no such thing in access.

The closest thing I know of is the OleDbConnection.GetOleDbSchemaTable() method. if you connect to an access db and call this, it will give you metadata about all the objects. Note that this will work for any OleDb provider that supports the method, not only access providers.
