 Cant Open Password Protected Paradox table in VB6

I am trying to access a password protected paradox table via VB6 (I
know what the password is).
I have tried the following versions of code but each comes up with the
"Unexpected Error from external database driver"

CTRLic.Open "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;data Source=" &
strfolder & ";Password=1111;Extended Properties=Paradox 5.x;Persist
Security Info=True;Jet OLEDB:Engine Type=53;"
Set rst = CTRLic.Execute("select * From [employee.db]")

Set db = DBEngine(0).OpenDatabase(strfolder, 0, 0, "Paradox
Set rs = db.OpenRecordset("employee#DB")

I have the DBE installed (have to to run other progrmas) and he table
with password has no index

I've looked on the HOWTO: Open a Password-Protected Paradox Table
Using DAO (Q217213) and this code (attempt2) does not do the trick

If anyone knows how to connect then it would be much appreciated
