Replace the user id and password accordingly.

You should set a password to the database and then correct your conncetion-string.

constr = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=" & App.Path & "\shalimardbs.mdb;Persist Security Info=false;Jet OLEDB:Database Password=yourpasssswordddd"

slavikn,

You are here long enough to know EE policy. The policy here is to post everyhing in comments. Questionner will then have the option to accept a comment as an answer. Posting as a proposed answer will lock the question and thus restrict the exposure to more experts. We know you are new here and thus is forgiven. With the current version of EE, you do not have the option to convert your answer to a comment but this can be done by the questioner himself. I advise the questionner to reject his answer so that this question will be released to more experts. You can however accept his comment again if you find it is really helpful.

Thanks
hongjun

First of all I am very sorry. Secondly, how did you manage to add a comment if it is forbidden?

Best regards,

This question is not forbidden. It is just being brought to the Locked state and thus reducing exposure to more experts.
