How do you eliminate password prompt when opening Access DB/

How do you eliminate password prompt when opening Access DB/

How do you eliminate password prompt when opening Access DB/

(OP)
We have a VB 6.0 application which opens an Access database using ODBC connections.  We have included the dsn file and set up the connection in the code.  Yet each time we open this *.mdb, it prompts the user for the userid and password.  I was sure that there is a way to eliminate this.  Can anybody help?  Thanks.

RE: How do you eliminate password prompt when opening Access DB/

I can tell u that u can just remove the password from the MDB file -if it is not created with access 2000 or later
u just can edit the access file with any hex editor then goto to the latter near the first capital N latter change it to the binary value (131) รข then save the mdb file to any name u want
and enjoy
the password just gone
becarfull that mean the password will be dameged so dont apply any password to the file


RE: How do you eliminate password prompt when opening Access DB/

You might also want to try adding the login id and password into the connection string.  
"UID=<userid>;PWD=<password>;"

Good Luck
