The most common problem  for Microsoft Access database is setting correct database permissions for Access database. 

Microsoft has strict rules for database permissions. If using a  web hosting company, there is normally nothing you need to do. Most reputable web hosting companies, provide a separate folder for you to use that has both the correct permissions and is safe from hackers. 

Using a Web Hosting Company
If you are using a  web hosting company, and cannot write to the database, please run our diagnostic tool diag_dbtest.asp (or shopdbtest.asp for VP-ASP 3.x and 4.x). And then contact your web hosting company and ask them to either tell you where to put the database or ask them to fix the permissions for the FOLDER where the database is located. We cannot help with this.
