I can connect fine when the database does not have a password set using this code.
<%
Set Conn = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
Conn.Open "Provider=Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0;Data Source=d:\database\Phase1.accdb"
%>

But when I try adding a password to the database by going to Database Tools, then Encrypt with Password, and then add this line to the code, I can no longer connect to the database.

<%
Set Conn = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
Conn.Open "Provider=Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0;Data Source=d:\database\Phase1.accdb;Jet OLEDB:Database Password='password';Mode=Share Exclusive"
%>

I get this error.

Error Type:
Microsoft Office Access Database Engine (0x80040E4D)
Not a valid password.
/includes/database.asp, line 5


Please help :)  Thank you.

Note that this works fine with an Access 2003 database in MDB format, but NOT an access 2007 database in ACCDB format.

Remove the single quotes from the password.  

Password=abcdef

I found that if I put a space after the colon "Jet OLEDB: Database Password=" I get another error, this error is:

Error Type:
Microsoft Office Access Database Engine (0x80004005)
Could not find installable ISAM.
/includes/database.asp, line 5

Maybe that is the issue?

I was able to find the solution:
This code was correct :
<%
Set Conn = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
Conn.Open "Provider=Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0;Data Source=d:\database\Phase1.accdb;Jet OLEDB:Database Password=password;"
%>

I was able to find some updates to run to my system, the first being: Download the ODBC and OLEDB Drivers from this website.
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=7554F536-8C28-4598-9B72-EF94E038C891&displaylang=en

Then after that I ran updates on Microsoft Updates and found a few different ones:
a.      Update for Microsoft Access 2007 Help
b.      Update for the 2007 Microsoft Office System Help for Common Features
c.      Update for the 2007 Microsoft System
d.      MS Office Access Runtime and Data Connectivity 2007 Service Pack 2
e.      2007 MS Office Suite Service Pack 2

Updated my system, restarted and everything worked. :)
