I have an Access Database named: C:\TEST.MDB

I have set the password in Access 97 as: ABC

When I open the file TEST.MDB in Access it asks for the password after entering ABC I can access the information..
I want to open the Database file using a Visual Basic 5 Prof. Program, when I try opening the Database file VB always tells me I have used an incorrect PASSWORD!!!  

How do I open the Database File with the password???

IF you are using a data control:
With Data1
DatabaseName=App.Path & "\my.mdb"
RecordSource="mytable"
Connect=";Pwd=" & pwd
Refresh
End With

If you are using DAO:
Set YourDB = DBEngine.WorkSpaces(0).OpenDatabase(YourDBFilewithPAth,False,False,";Pwd=" & pwd)
