following code in asp created password for access database file

Set objAccess = Server.CreateObject("Access.Application")
objAccess.Visible = True
objAccess.OpenCurrentDatabase ("Path_to_your_.mdb_file")

there was no password defined at all neither in past nor current... the problem is really ugly and strange :)

what do you mean, it created a password?  

Does it prompt you for a password when you try to open the file on your server, or when you try to open it via your ASP page?

Thanks,

yes it seemed to have created a password. When I try to open the mdb-file on the server it prompts for a password (that was never generated or entered).
The asp page that is accessing that same mdb-file for another reason is now erroring out with code 'invalid password'.
Where the hell did that password come from and how can I get my mdb-file back?
