    I am trying to locate information on how to utilize Access Runtime. I have a
    database prepared I want my end users to utilize. The end users do not have
    access on their computers. I am working with Office 2003 pro and also have
    visual studio tools for office. This is a new product for me and nothing
    seems clear on how this works.

    Also, my end users are going to gain access to this database on our server.
    The server does have Access installed but we only have it licensed for a
    small amount of users. Does having Access installed on the server affect
    whether or not the end user gains entry to my database via the Access
    installed on the server or Access Runtime?

    no....not one bit...

    You don't have to install ms-access on the server at all...at least if you
    are using a file share, and simply placing the mdb data file on the server.

    If you are planning multi-user, then you need to read the following
    article..and be aware of a split database...

    Here is some more tid bits on using the runtime....

    What kind of server? If a Terminal Server then fine. If a file
    server then there is no need to install Access on the server.
