    I am not sure if this makes sense but I was wondering how Access works.
    Does the program contain the jet engine or is the engine part of
    windows? Can someone run an Access database without having Access
    installed?

    There are two parts to what people typically call "Access": the database
    engine (Jet or MSDE) and the application (forms, reports, macros and VBA
    modules)

    The Access executable (msaccess.exe) must be installed in order to use the
    application components, but as long as you have the necessary Jet drivers
    (which now come with the operating system), you can get the data from the
    tables.
