i do like this:
1.Set password to Access database. (Ex:Password = Admin)
2.i will create a Password field to Chk user Login - MyUsername,MyPassword,MyLevel.
   (EX:Username = tanvi ,Password = 123 ,Level = Administrator)
3.When Program start then i will use Password 'Admin' to Connect to Access.
4.After Connect Access,i can retrieved data from access then compare with username,
 password which User Enter.
EX: if txtUsername.text <> RsFromAccessDatabase.fields(MyUsername) and
          txtPassword.text <> RsFromAccessDatabase.fields(MyPassword)  then
        msgbox "Inccorrect Password,Try again"
       else

In that case you can assign a password in Access.  Then your application should display a form which asks the user for password and user information.  You should then use this information as part of the concatinated connection string then you try to access Access:

strUser = Trim(txtUsername.Text)
strPass = Trim(txtPassword.Text)

oConn.Open "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;" & _
           "Data Source=c:\somepath\mydb.mdb;" & _
           "Jet OLEDB:System Database=MySystem.mdw", strUser, strPass
