See the Following Links to Make Your Access DataBase Password Protected :

http://databases.about.com/od/tutorials/ss/passwordprotect.htm[^]
http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/access-help/create-change-or-remove-passwords-mdb-HP005188275.aspx[^]
http://voices.yahoo.com/microsoft-access-tutorial-password-protect-2350424.html[^]

Please Note that if your Database is Password Protected then you have to Pass these credentials in Connection String While Connecting to DataBase from application.
I hope it will help you. Smile | :)

I don't know why you are asking this instead of searching in google. Password Protecting an Access 2010 Database[^] may solve your problem.

May be this[^] can add a plugin in my answer.

You should also know How to Set Database Password and Unset Database Password[^] in MS Access.

Did you try Hiding the database window? In the Tools menu of the MS Access database, click on Startup. On the right side of the dialog box, uncheck the Display Database Window checkbox. That will prevent the database from being viewed. Most users don't know how to UnHide the window.
