m getting the same error.
i have vista installed on my pc (if tht makes any difference).
some microsoft support sites recommend changes in the registry but i couldnt find those files in the registry. i tried insatalllin office again but all in vain.
plz help

got the solution
there should be a space between data and source
provider="....";data source = "";

Malformed connection string.

hmm.
may be the upper case and lower case difference is affecting
"Provider=Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0;
Data Source=alkdjfadljf;Persist Security Info = false;"

this provider is for access 2007

All the shit thing above, aint working bitches
