Hi
I am using a UDL file to connect to MS Access database. Currently my database is not password protected. I need to know how can access password protected MDB and access the same using UDL. Please note that I do not want to specify the Password in UDL file, I want to hardcode the same within the application in Connection String.

Currently my string looks like

constr = "File Name = " & UdlFileName

I do not want to specify password in UDL as one can see that if they opened that in Notepad.

Please help as soon as possible.

the connection string should be constructed like so:

#   Standard security:
"Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=\somepath\mydb.mdb;User Id=admin;Password=;"


#  Workgroup (system database):
"Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=\somepath\mydb.mdb;Jet OLEDB:System Database=system.mdw;"


#  With password:
"Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=\somepath\mydb.mdb;Jet OLEDB:Database Password=MyDbPassword;"

Regards,
