    Dear Jetro:

    You can't. You need to have Access installed, or have the runtime version of
    Access installed. You can't compile an Access application to an .exe.

    You need the version of Access designed (and priced) for the
    professional developer. I can't remember the name of the current version of
    it, but you will know it from the price. It has all the tools to do what
    you want, although you still need to install that special runtime version of
    Access on each machine, but you will not need to pay extra for each one. Of
    course they will not allow the users to make design changes.

    An Access database file is a container for other files. It contains tables
    with application data and other tables with object definition data. It is
    not possible to compile this type of file. Either the retail version of
    Access or the runtime version is required to be installed on any PC that
    needs to run your application.

    You can purchase the Visual Studio Tools for the Microsoft Office System
    ($700) which includes the packaging and deployment wizard that lets you
    create a professional installation package to install your application and
    any necessary ancillary files. The tool also lets you distribute a royalty
    free license for the MSAccess.exe which is needed to run your application.
    The tools can distribute unlimited copies of a single application or
    multiple applications. There are no number limits.

    As a substitute for what? The standard VS product does NOT come with the
    Access runtime license. Only the "tools" product does.

    The "tools" product doesn't do anything to your database. It only gives you
    a license to distribute the MSAccess.exe along with your .mdb.

    There is no other way. To run an Access database, you MUST have the correct
    version (retail or runtime) of MS Access installed.

    yes you are right there is no way i can make a standalone application, but i
    got this sample and i tried it and it works but it only remove some access
    command and icons. by using runtime command and i create a shortcut icon and
    then copy it to target

    "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\OFFICE11\MSACCESS.EXE" /runtime
    "C:\Documents and Settings\Accpac\My Documents\Expense report database.mdb"

    But that shortcut requires that Access exist on the workstation!
