I could successfully import the application defination file that got build using BDC MetaMan into SSP site.

I am trying to use the Business Data List webpart to dispaly the list of employees from the access northwind sample database. After I select Employees business data type from Business Data Type Picker and hit "OK" - the following error message is displayed in the web part...

"An error occurred while retrieving data from Northwind 2007.accdbInstance"

It sounds like the permissions on the ADF are not set properly. You might try RevertToSelf first.
And since you are using Access that just adds a new wrinkle. Check the ACL on the file  itself and make sure the app ppol account can read the file. Or if you want to use Integrated, make sure the current user is part  of a group that can read said file.
