Default Passwrd protected mdb file from Crystl Rpt in vb6

Plz help. Its urgent. When i m trying to connect an access database using crystal report viewer in vb6 I am getting an error saying "not a valid password". I have tried OLEDB, Access(dao) connections from crystalreport1 designer control. But in vain.

PLz give me a through detail about how can i solve this problem.
Note: my database report can be opened directly by crystal report directly without going through vb6.

You need to prepend a linefeed character to the password for it to work, see the example below:

Dim mCRXReport As CRAXDRT.Report
Dim crxTable As CRAXDRT.DatabaseTable

Set mCRXReport = mcrxApplication.OpenReport _
                    ("MyFolder\MyReport.rpt", 1)

    For Each crxTable In mCRXReport.Database.Tables
        'The next line just supplies the database location
        crxTable.SetTableLocation "c:\MyStuff\MyData.mdb", "", ""
        'Add a linefeed to your password
        crxTable.SetSessionInfo "", Chr(10) & "MyPassword"
    Next crxTable

Best Regards,
