VB Access 2000 Passwords

I am trying to connect to a Access .db with a global password.

 TMRace = "DRIVER={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)}; DBQ=" & dbFile & ";UID=Administrator;PWD=sam1104;"
        conn.Open TMRace

When I try to compact it after closing the above connection I get an error with the following code:

 Dim strSourceDB As String
 Dim strDestDB As String
 
  Dim jetEngine          As JRO.jetEngine
  Dim strSourceConnect   As String
  Dim strDestConnect     As String
 strSourceDB = dbFile
 strDestDB = dbArchive
 
 Kill (dbArchive)
 
  strSourceConnect = "Data Source=" & strSourceDB & ";"
  strDestConnect = "Data Source=" & strDestDB & ";"

  Set jetEngine = New JRO.jetEngine

  jetEngine.CompactDatabase strSourceConnect, strDestConnect

  Set jetEngine = Nothing
  CompactDb = True
End Function

What is the proper syntax for this compact with the first connect string?  Ideas?

Compact Database Example.

Dim objDAO_DBEngine As Object
Dim objFSO As Object
Dim strCompactedDBFile As String

Set objDAO_DBEngine = CreateObject("DAO.DBEngine.36")
Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")

If objFSO.FileExists(strCompactedDBFile) Then
   objFSO.DeleteFile (strCompactedDBFile)
End If

objDAO_DBEngine.CompactDatabase dbFile, dbArchive

objFSO.CopyFile dbArchive, dbFile

objFSO.DeleteFile dbArchive 'delete the copy

Set objFSO = Nothing
Set objDAO_DBEngine = Nothing

Ignore the above post. Got some errors. Below is the correct example.



Dim objDAO_DBEngine As Object
Dim objFSO As Object
Dim strCompactedDBFile As String

Set objDAO_DBEngine = CreateObject("DAO.DBEngine.36")
Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")

If objFSO.FileExists(dbArchive) Then
  objFSO.DeleteFile (dbArchive)
End If

objDAO_DBEngine.CompactDatabase dbFile, dbArchive

objFSO.CopyFile dbArchive, dbFile

objFSO.DeleteFile dbArchive 'delete the copy

Set objFSO = Nothing
Set objDAO_DBEngine = Nothing

hongjun,
There is a way with existing VB objects - not creating new instances as in ASP.  Also, I have a password on this one.

Other ideas?

Re: Unclosed questions - Did not get solution 2 of the 4 but closed them anyway and awarded points to the best answer.  The other 2 are this one and one with points for someone who has yet to pick them up. Thanks for the reminder though.

Try this

Try this

Dim jetEngine As JRO.JetEngine
Dim strSourceConnect As String
Dim strDestConnect As String
Dim objFso As Object

Set jetEngine = New JRO.JetEngine
strSourceConnect = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;" & _
                 "Data Source=" & dbFile & ";" & _
                 "User Id=Administrator;" & _
                 "Password=sam1104;"
strDestConnect = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;" & _
             "Data Source=" & dbArchive & ";" & _
             "User Id=Administrator;" & _
             "Password=sam1104;"

jetEngine.CompactDatabase strSourceConnect, strDestConnect

Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
objFSO.CopyFile dbArchive, dbFile
objFSO.DeleteFile dbArchive 'delete the copy


Set objFSO = Nothing
Set jetEngine = Nothing

Now you're onto my problem :-).  With that It wants a workgroup file to pull the username/id from the system.mdw and I just want an overall password for the .db - NOT a user workgroup setup.  If I put it in exactly as you describe (already did it - should have told you), I get the error 'Could not find WorkGroup file', which is correct.  I don't have the .db set up for tiered-access - just an overall password.

Keep going - your on the right track!

Got it!  It was:
        'Set Connect Strings
        strSourceConnect = "Data Source=" & dbFile & ";" & _
                            "Jet OLEDB:Database Password=sam1104;"
        strDestConnect = "Data Source=" & dbArchive & ";" & _
                            "Jet OLEDB:Database Password=sam1104;"
        strTempConnect = "Data Source=" & dbTemp & ";" & _
                            "Jet OLEDB:Database Password=sam1104;"

without Database in front of password, it is looking for the workgroup information - NOT the overall password.  Thanks for your effort and prompt response though!
