You can create a Access Database using this code:

Set appAccess = CreateObject("Access.Application")
appAccess.NewCurrentDatabase "c:\test.mdb"

i am unsure about setting the password, etc..

This will create an Access DB for the version of Access that is installed on the users machine.
this also means, No Access, No Database.

Oops! Sorry. posted incorrect code above for Setting the Password.. Heres it again. Other things remain same.


    ' set the password
    Set objConn = CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
    objConn.Mode = adModeShareExclusive 'opens in exclusive mode
    objConn.Open "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data source=C:\TestDB.mdb;Persist Security info=False"
    strAlter = "ALTER Database Password " & Password & " NULL"
    objConn.Execute strAlter
    Set objConn = Nothing
