i currently use the connection string below when i connect to a sql database from the ms access db.  The connection string is used for passthrough queries and recordsets.  it works fine

Connection string
connstring = "Provider=SQLOLEDB;DRIVER=SQL Server;SERVER=" & serverip & ";UID=" & usernamewrite & ";PWD=" & passwordwrite & ";DATABASE=DBName"

I am not being asked to encrypt the connection I am making the sql server.  any advise on how to go about doing that?

You would add:

encrypt=true

to the connection string.  However note that this requires setup on the SQL Server and client (in the form of a SSL certificate) if that has not already been done:
