    Is there any way to use the coding Access generates to have it run on
    machines that don't have Access installed?

    There's no way to turn a DB into an executable, if that's what you're
    looking for. Assuming that you want to allow people who do not have Access
    installed to use your application, you have 3 main options:

    1) Rewrite your application in a language that can be compiled into an
    executable such as VB or VC++ (note that your data will still have to be
    kept in an external MDB file)

    2) Rewrite your application as a web app

    3) Get the Access Developer edition that's appropriate for whatever version
    of Access you're using (see
    http://www.granite.ab.ca/access/developereditionversions.htm for details of
    what you need to look for) What this allows you to do is package your
    application together with a royalty-free run-time version of Access. Users
    who don't have Access installed will be able to install the run-time and use
    your application. They will not be able to use the runtime to make design
    changes to your application (nor to any other MDB)

    You need to purchase the following in order to create an Access 2003 runtime
    application:

    - Microsoft Access 2003
    - Visual Studio Tools for Office 2005 (which includes the Access 2003
    Developer Extensions)

    The ADE is the product that gives you the license to deploy the 2003 runtime
    components and you have to have Access 2003 installed in order to install
    the ADE.

    See http://msdn.microsoft.com/office/understanding/vsto/default.aspx for
    more details, or

    No, but you can buy a developers version that includes a runtime version
    of Access that can be given to those who will be using your application.
    Neither you nor they need to pay extra for the copies, but the original cost
    a few $$$

    There are a number of threads on this subject, check them out and note
    that they identify the proper name of the version you need based on the
    version of Access you are using.
