Is there a way to enter an ACCESS database password in a data control object on a VB form?  If so, how do I do it? It seems like there should be a simple way to put it in the properties someplace but I can't find it. I'm using ACCESS 97 and VB 5.0.   --BOB

Use the Connect property ";pwd=pass"

Connect gives me a selection of database type.  Access is already selected.  Do I add your solution to Access to give me 'Access;pwd=password' or is there something I'm missing?  When I do this, I get an error 3170 saying 'couldn't find installable ISAM'. The ;pwd=password has always worked well for me with the Set db=OpenDataBase.....("databasename",False,False,";pwd=password").

For Access database you can ommit the type, just use ";pwd=pass"

Thanks, MikeP.  It worked and saved me a lot of re-programming.
