I am trying to connect to an Access database using VBScript in Outlook 98.  It seems like the code is connecting to the database but it says "Record(s) can't be read; no read permission on 'tblEmployee'".  How in VBScript would I pass it a username and password?

What code do you have so far?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

No, the database isn't read only but even if it was I should still be able to select from it.  I just wouldn't be able to change anything.

I will post the code first thing Monday morning.  I am at home so I don't have it in front of me.  Sorry about that....  I should have posted it in the first place.

Thanks...

As you can see this is fired off when they press a command button.

Sub Submit_Click
          'Set the location of the database
      SetDatabaseLocation("y:\eclaims.mdb")

      'Initialize Outlook Variables
      InitializeOutlookVariables

      'Open the database
      OpenDatabase
      
      'Get the SQL statement ready
      strSQL = "SELECT * FROM tblEmployee;"
      Set MyRS = myDb.OpenRecordset(strSQL)
.......
         ---Some other code to do something with the data
End Sub

sub OpenDatabase
      'Initialize DAO
      on error resume next
      Set dbe = item.application.CreateObject("DAO.DBEngine.35")
      if err.Number <> 0 Then
          MsgBox "There is an error with the data access components. " & Chr(13) _
          & "Please contact the Help Desk at ext. xxx.", vbOKOnly + VBExclamation,                                                                "Data Access Error"
          ErrorDetected = 1
          Exit Sub
      End If

      Set myDb = dbe.workspace(0).OpenDatabase(DatabaseLocation, False, False,                                  "MS Access;USR=joeblow;PWD=password")
      If Err.Number <> 0 Then
           MsgBox "There is an error with the Help Desk at ext. xxx." & Chr(13) _
           & "Please contact your Administrator", vbOKOnly + VBExclamation,                       "Database Access Error"
           ErrorDetected = 1
           Exit Sub
      End If
End Sub

Sub InitializeOutlookVariables
      set oNameSpace = Application.GetNameSpace("MAPI")
End Sub

sub SetDatabaseLocation(Location)
      DatabaseLocation = Location
end sub

Sorry about the formatting on that.  It didn't come out very good after I hit the submit button.

Oops...  The above line in Sub OpenDatabase should have read:

Set myDb = dbe.OpenDatabase(DatabaseLocation, False, False, "MS Access;UID=sa;PWD=pass")

Have you checked permissions on the table in Access?

Yea, that was one of the first things I looked at.  I can log in directly to the database using the same username and password as my program is using and it works just fine.

In DAO, the password is best applied at the Workspace level. So replace
Set myDb = dbe.OpenDatabase(DatabaseLocation, False, False, "MS Access;UID=sa;PWD=pass")

with

Set MyWS = dbe.CreateWorkspace("SomeName", "sa", "pass", dbUseJet)
Set myDb = MyWS.OpenDatabase(DatabaseLocation)
