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.

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
