A quick follow-up: if I save the access database, edit the 
ASCII file, and remove the password field (make it null), then 
the functionality is restored; that is, I can finally change 
the password to what I want and it then works. So, something 
in the old database seemingly became corrupted and prevented 
further modifications to the passwords, I think.
