First, you cannot get at an Access database by only an IP address. Access is a file-based database with no communication module, you need to be able to get at the database file through a shared folder on the remote machine.

Second, if you have no information on the database itself, how talbes are arranged and used, column details, how data is stored, how to interpret what is retrieved, how to submit a query, ... you have no hope of accomplishing this task. There is no generic "this is how fingerprints are stored in a database" specification for this.

you are right Dave, but how can the application with that fingerprint machine access the database without any information
Dave Kreskowiak 3-Apr-11 9:03am
Are you kidding me? Of cource the application knows how to get to the database and use it! The same people that wrote the application also wrote the database. The application knows everything it needs to use that database.

If YOU don't know anything about the database, how are you going to tell your own app how to use it??

I don't have to. I've already worked with stuff that this thing will NOT work with.

Thanks Jone.

For OP:
In order to connect to a database, you HAVE to know it's type and other details to access it. Connection string would depend on that.
