How can I read a simple .mdb file with VB6 that is password protected. All user permissions are set to default and I can read it fine if there is no password without using any code. When I add a password to the Access database, my VB app can't access it anymore. Any ideas??

ahammar,
u can set up a connection string with  the userID and Password.
Then set up the conection to the database with this connection string.this should work.
eg:
dim sCnn as string
scnn = "{rsDbdriver}, ServerName,databasename,TableName,UsrID Password"
use this string(scnn) to establish connection  with the .mdb file
