    In the shortcut to open the database add :
    /user username /pwd yourpassword

    I assume this is a database you have secured. Recommend a shortcut like this example, specifying path to executable, path/name of secured db, path of workgroup file, user name, password, and exclusive switch (if opening as an admin, exclude this option for a user shortcut):

    "C:Program FilesMicrosoft OfficeOfficeMSACCESS.EXE" "C:AccessApp FilesAPP2K.mdb" /WRKGRP "C:AccessApp FilesAPP.mdw" /user "MARKD" /pwd "ABC123***" /excl

    The db won't be very "secure" if other persons have access to the shortcut that contains the user name & password.

    I would probably need to see the complete command-line target you are using. I'm using Access 2K and the shortcut format previously posted works OK. If any of the arguments (such as paths, etc) have spaces in them (as illustrated in example), the entire path must be delimited by quotes or Windows will think there are two or more separate commands rather than a single argument. Also, does database open OK when you log in "manually" by entering password?

    The user command-line option does not have a forward-slash in front of it. Recommend add forward-slash like this :

    /user "jjr"

    Then try again & see if works.
