Use this:

Const dbPathName = "c:\database.mdb"
Const strPassword = "PASSWORD"
Dim Acc As Object, db As Object

Set Acc = CreateObject("Access.Application")
Set db = Acc.Application.DBEngine.Workspaces(0).OpenDatabase(dbPathName, 0, False, ";pwd=" & strPassword)
Acc.OpenCurrentDatabase dbPathName, False
Set db = Nothing
Acc.DoCmd.OpenReport "ReportName", acPreview
Set Acc = Nothing
