connection string with database password...

P: n/a
What is the connection string linking an Access front end mdb to an Access
back end mdb that has a database password set.using the standard linking
process - no odbc or ado connections. Someone suggested a website full of
links, but it wasn't there. The connection string starts with

;Database=C;\<path>\<back end mdb>

How do I put the back end database password in here?

Thanks.

Like this:

;Database=C;\<path>\<back end mdb>;PWD=<password>
