See more: ASP.NET database path
I`ve connected an web page with access database, when I try to add a new record, I get this error:
(Could not find file 'C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\DevServer\10.0\DataBase.accdb'.)
note: my data base is already in App_Data folder.
and when I copy db file into that path, any inserting will be in that path not in the one in App_Data!!
how to fix it to keep changes only in the original database ?

The message is quite clear, you are trying to use a path to a file that does not exist. Your error is most likely because you are using a relative path for your database in your connection string (.\DataBase.accdb). Change your path to the correct location of your database and try again.

well, you`re right, It`ll work when I keep the full path which is
C:\Users\Administrator\Documents\Visual Studio 2010\Projects\WebApplication5\WebApplication5\App_Data\DataBase.accdb
put I want to keep it portable for my teacher, I`ll send it to him.
dunno what to call this situation :(

If you want to make it portable then you need to add some extra code to locate the file at the start of the application; see this link for more information.
