AMA,

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"

AMA,

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
