    Default Encrypting Access DBs

    I have a site which uses OLEDB to get to an Access DB. Everything works Ok until I encrypt the Access DB - then the ASP cannot read the DB any more. Am I missing a special connection parameter or something? I have a DB password on the DB but no other security.
