Connecting to Access with OleDB

You can also connect to an access database with an OleDB database driver. The Microsoft Jet OleDB driver is a good option to use Access databases. In this section we give you the connection strings you can use if you wish to connect through OleDB.

This is the connection string to use when you have an access database protected with a password using the Set Database Password function in Access.

Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=C:\mydatabase.mdb;Jet OLEDB:Database Password=MyDbPassword;
