Pass in user and password like this:

        cryReport.ReportFileName = "C:\report.rpt"
        cryReport.UserName = "User"
        cryReport.Password = "Password"

In theory the suggested solution should work - but it didn't for me!

I receive an error code 20000 - no error !  but the report does not appear.  Any ideas?

Did you change "User" and "Password" to your user id and password?

Can you use the same id and password to login to Access?

Yes - I used a user name and password which worked when accessing the Access 97 database directly.  The user name was included in a user group with read, update, insert & delete privileges.  Thats why I've been tearing my hair out!
