Anyone who uses SQL instead of Access in 4.5 and wants FedEx as well has to do the following;

To use your version 4.5 shopfedex.asp file you would need to change line 105 of from:
OpenOtherDatabase dbc, xFedexdb,xdblocation,xdatabasetype
OpenOtherDatabase dbc, xFedexdb,"",""

Hi, Radek, thank you for the information.

I wish to use the fedex.mdb database as it is the only fedex database available from the AddON, my problem is my store(VPASP606) is running on MySQL, and evrytime it excute the fedex.asp, it was trying to find "countries" table from the MySQL database instead from the fedex.mdb.

I did change the setting in fedexconfig.asp as below
const xfedexdb="fedex.mdb"
const fedexdblocation="D:/inetpub/httpdocs/database/"
const xfedexdatabasetype="MSAccess"

The MSAccess is the DSN i configure at ODBC setting for MS Access Driver, and the connection to the fedex.mdb was tested successful for this DSN.

I also found that in Amin Menu, under Advanced, there is a field xotherdatabases, (as explained,it is used with xothertables. It lists the database names in which those tables can be found. If left empty, then the other tables are assumed to be in the same database as the products. ) So, i set xotherdatabases=fedex.mdb and xothertables=countries....But it still look for "countries" table in MySQL database which is of nor existance .....
very much grateful if someone can help or give some hint where to troubleshoot it further..
