hi anil,
what kcm has given is correct

example is like this

Dim cnInvoice as adodb.connection

Set cnInvoice = New ADODB.Connection

cnInvoice.Open "dsn=Sankhla;uid=;pwd=anil;"

to create a dsn
1)choose odbc from control panel.
2)choose userdsn,then select add
3)choose Microsoft Access Driver(*.mdb)
5)Select Finish
6)Give a name to your datasource(dsn)
7)Select the Database

and use the same dsn in your code and the password
it should run

good luck anil

Hi Harsha,
Sorry, i forget to mention about DSN less connection. Actually I need help in accessing databse using dsn less connection only.
You are right for DSN connection.
