What programming language and why don't you click on "Request Attention" and get this put in the MySQL zone if that is the database you're using?

How about putting the password in a string variable first, then putting that in the connection string:

sPass = "AB9O]]8y;y"
sConn = "ODBC;DSN=mysql;UID=username ;PWD=" & sPass & "; DATABASE=mydatabase;"

Open in new window

Have you tried double quotes around the password parameter?
 sConn = "ODBC;DSN=mysql;UID=username ;PWD=\"AB9O]]8y;y\";DATABASE=mydatabase;"
