Hi @DavidB023,

 

As I know, currently Password-protected Access database files are still not supported. And there already exists an Idea for it. You can vote it up.

I know this is an old post, but I see no traction in the upvotes.  Also there is mention of OLE DB connection but what if the database is in Sharepoint and not in a drive?

Dear all, 

Has this been resolved in the meantime, i.e. can I import an password protected Access Database?

If not, does this mean I just have to delete the password and will then be able to import the file?

Thanks for your help!

Best wishes,

Simon
