Open the database in RUNTIME ONLY! However, if you want to open it for administration or design time you must use ODBC resources provided by Windows. Visual Basic can connect to the password protected database only if ODBC is properly configured.

Hope that helped!

Is it?

In the Connection tab, don't set User Name and password (leave them as they are).

After setting the database name, goto the ALL tab, select "Jet OLEDB: Database password", click on "edit Value" and enter your password.
