Password Protect an Access Database

Password Protect an Access Database

For simple Microsoft Access security, set the database password from the Security item under the Tools menu in Access, select Set Database Password, and enter a password. To use the database in VB, pass a value along with the “pwd” keyword to the SOURCE value of the OpenDatabase method:

 Dim db as DatabaseDim Wkspc as WorkSpacesDim strPass as STRINGstrPass = ";pwd=PASSWORD"Set Wkspc = Workspaces(0)Set db = Wkspc.OpenDatabase(DBName, False, False, strPass)
