I have a program that access students marks. I want to create user security on different objects in the database. How do I pass the user name and password to access from VB to access the table.

You can use security with Access databases with visual basic. In fact, you can use multiple levels of security.

Suppose you have a user called "user1" with password "pw1". Write the following code:

DIM WS as Workspace
dim DB as Database
set WS=DBEngine.CreateWorkSpace("MyWS","User1","pw1")
set DB=WS.OpenDatabase("MyDB.mdb")

The DB database will have the permission you've given to user1.

A little note:You must also point to the system database (the one that holds the users and groups information). This is shown blow:

write this code just below the declarations
DBEngine.SystemDB "system.mdw"
