Set up an ODBC connection to the access database, providing the password, then just point the CR to the ODBC connection.

If you are using the crystal OCX try this prior to printing try this:
Example with ODBC:
With single database use Connect
CrystalReport1.Connect = "DSN = YOURODBC;UID = userID;PWD = pw"
With Multiple DB Use LogOnInfo
CrystalReport1.LogOnInfo(0) = "DSN = YOURODBC;UID = userID;PWD = pw"
Where (0), (1) is for each DB...

Look in your crystal developer help file...
Hope this helps.

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.

Or w/out ODBC...
try:
CrystalReport1.UserName = "User"
Crystalreport1.Password = "pw"

Then your connection string should look something like..

Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Password=MyPassword;User ID=MyUsernam;Data Source=Z:\db1.mdb;Persist Security Info=True
