I am trying to do the tutorial located at:http://www.telerik.com/help/aspnet-ajax/grddesigncreatinghierarchicalgrids.html
that a telerik staffer recommended I complete. The problem
is (as always) I can not find all the components to even learn the tutorial, namely, the ACCESS database file called Nwind.mdb. I looked in the Live Demos/App_Data file (C:\Program Files\Telerik\RadControls for ASPNET AJAX Q3 2008\Live Demos\App_Data) and there is no
Nwind.mdb file residing there. I performed a search on my box and found this particular ACCESS database within another application (Developer Express .net), but nothing in the Live Demos/App_Data folder as the tutorial instructs, only Northwind.mdf and the Northwind.ldf.
Now because I needed the .MDB file, not a .MDF file, I copied and pasted the Nwind.mdb file from the Developer Express folder and pasted it in the Live Demos/App_Data folder in Telerik. I then copied said database file from the Dev Express directory and pasted it from that directory into the Live Demos/App_Data file of my telerik project as the tutorial instructs. However, when I try to configure the database to the AccessDataSource1 control for the RadGrid to display the data, I keep receiving the following error:
- Database schema could not be retrieved for this connection. Please make sure the connections settings are correct and that the databse i online. Unspecified error
Why can't I connect to the database? I'm online, which I don't know how that makes any difference since the Live Demos/App_data directory is on hard drive.
