    Cool Unanswered: Creating MDE for Secured DB Programmatically

    Hi Everyone-

    Sorry if this is a redundant message. I am new to this forum.

    Basically what I am doing is writing code that will compile my mdb file to mde format. The code looks like this:

    Dim objAccessApp As Access.Application
    Set objAccessApp = New Access.Application

    objAccessApp.SysCmd 603, strPath & "\TMPmde\TMP.mdb", strPath & "\TMPmde\TMP.mde"
    Set objAccessApp = Nothing

    This code works fine, but since all db's are secured, a login pops up. If anyone knows a way to pass the username and password to the new access instance or automate the login so that the user does not have to type his/her username and password everytime this code executes, it would make my application much cleaner.

    Thank you in advance for your help,

    PS: SysCmd 63 is an undocumented method that works very well for compiling the current database.

    if you can somehow send the shift key then you might be able to suppress the login screen. I have never tried it but its worth a shot.
