Hi tomex,

A couple of questions:

1) Are you using ADO or DAO to connect to this database?

2) What string are using to connect to the database.

Also, some very excellent code on this subject may be found at http://www.freevbcode.com

Try This ..

Dim DB As Database

Set DB = OpenDatabase("\\Server1\GST\Payroll\PayrollDB.mdb", False, False, ";PWD=IIT")

Here "\\Server1\GST\Payroll\PayrollDB.mdb" is the DB location..

and under project referance u should select "Microsoft DAO 2.5/3.0 compatible Library"
