ACCDB password


hello, is it possible to programmatically set or change the password to an accdb file from within an application (my app is written in VB 6)
i know this was possible in the old mdb format but what are the options for the new format i must use the accdb format for security reasons.

Using a password to protect forms

Hi I have created a database with a form that is protected by a password, but in order for the password to be set the user needs to convert the string into keycode. For example, during testing the password used is PASSWORD with the code 2818. It would obviously be better for the user to be able to change this password without having to know the code. To make the password I orginally followed another tutorial so am a little out of my comfort zone. THanks pb

How to create accounts with username and password in MS Access

I tried creating new accounts in MS Access 2003 thru Tools>Security>User and Group Accounts. I can log in successfully in the database with my username and password in MY COMPUTER. But if I send it thru an email to a person in other countries. The data doesnt ask for a username and a password anymore. They can access the database without username and password.
