    Have you tried to "Add a new DSN connection" ?

    When you want to know the real path to the database file. Run this script in the directory of the database:

    Just put it in a example.asp (or something like that)
    Response.Write Server.MapPath(Request.ServerVariables("PATH_INFO"))
    this line shows the real path to the databasefile.

    View this example on: http://mappath.denit.net

    You can add this path it in the plesk control panel under odbc. Test the connection et voila.

    Do not forget to set write permissions on the database file.
