I'm trying to compact and repair a password protected database with the following code:

Public Sub Compact()
   Dim CurrentFile As String, BackupFile As String
   On Error GoTo 0
   CurrentFile = "C:\CAV3\Database1.accdb"
   BackupFile = "F:\Database1.accdb"
   If Dir(BackupFile) > "" Then
      Kill BackupFile
   End If
   Application.CompactRepair CurrentFile, BackupFile, True
   Exit Sub
End Sub

How do I change it to supply the password?

Thanks in advance.
