Crystal Report and Password Protected MS Access Database

I have a Access Database which is password Protected . Now I want to use Visual Basic 6.0 and  Crystal Report 4.6 to display a print priview of the Records using Crystal report. 4.6
How should I do that .  I want the password to be coded in the program so that use need not
remember the password.

Database Name  :   Inventory.mdb  
Location             :   D:\Inventory2
Password           :   password

Please treat this matter most urgent .

This is one that I use.

The first one opens the database so that the tables can used.

The second open crystal reports for use.

'Opening up the database for table use.

strDB = "d:\Inventory2\Inventory.MDB"
Set db = OpenDatabase(strDB, False, False, ";pwd=password")

'For Crystal Reports.

CrystalReport1.Connect = "DSQ = " + d:\inventory2 + "\" + "Inventory.mdb" + ";pwd=exorcist"


Added additional code that could help.

'Opening up the database for table use.

strDB = "d:\Inventory2\Inventory.MDB"
Set db = OpenDatabase(strDB, False, False, ";pwd=password")

'For Crystal Reports.

CrystalReport1.Connect = "DSQ = " + d:\inventory2 + "\" + "Inventory.mdb" + ";pwd=password"

CrystalReport1.ReportFileName = App.Path + "\" + "ReportName.rpt"
CrystalReport1.WindowState = crptNormal
CrystalReport1.Destination = crptToWindow
CrystalReport1.Connect = ""

Can be done with a little less code, but I wanted you to see what was happening.

Sorry about the omission.  Good luck
