Connect to Access Database that is on a network drive requiring a username and password

I am trying to figure out how to connect to an Access database that is on a network drive using vba in Excel. I have this working fine if the network drive is already mapped however some of the people that will be using the Excel front end do not have read or write access to the network drive so I wanted to be able to create a connection to the network drive using vba and a specific username and password that does have these privileges. Is there a way to use either ado or dao to connect to an access database that is on a network drive that is not currently mapped?

Using Excel 2000 and Access 2000
