You should really consult a book or manual to Crystal Report on this.

In VB you should loop through tables in your report and for each table provide the password at the property of "ConnectionProperty".
There are examples at Crystal Report's Developers Help (CrystalDevHelp.chm) under chapter of "How toconnect to a secured Microsoft Access database".

Good Luck.

Here's an example of a password connection using ADO

Set gConn = New ADODB.Connection
gConn.Open "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;" & _
"Data Source=" & db & ";Jet OLEDB:Database Password=some;"

and one in DAO
Set db = Workspaces(0).OpenDatabase(App.Path & "\someDb.mdb", False, False, ";pwd=somePass")

Hope that helps
