    There are two types of Access password protection. One is a simple database password and the other is user level security which requires both a user ID and password.

    If user level security is implemented the user ID and password would be specified on the Connection tab of the Data Link Properties. If you are just using a database password then that would be specified in the "Jet OLEDB: Database Password" property on the All tab.

    If you are trying to specify the database password in the connection string then it would look something like the following:

    Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=C:\Documents and Settings\...\My Documents\Database\MyDb.mdb;Jet OLEDB:Database Password=Password
