OLEDB Permission Denied error



We have a user receiving a Permission Denied message when attempting to connect to the data provider. We've verified (repeatedly) that the user/password information is correct, and we've rebuilt the views in ActDiag. I recall seeing an issue some time ago with this type of problem happening due to a problem with the location attribute in the database pad file, but we've checked that as well.


Are there any other known causes of this message?

Some more information might help narrow down the problem.


Are all users, including newly created users getting the same message and are you able to established a connection to the demo database? That ought to at least narrow it down.
