If I have an Access 97 database called 'dog'
 I access it by:
set dbs = opendatabase("dog.mdb")
if I give the database a password called 'cat'  in Access, what is the syntax for accessing it. I keep getting not a valid password.

Looks like you use DAO:

Set DBS = OpenDatabase(yourdbPath & "\yourdb.mdb",False,False,";Pwd=" & pwd)
