    You can download a program called RAR from the internet
    http://www.rarlab.com/download.htm - it works with zip as well as a variety
    of other programs that make archive files.

    A zip file is like a packed suitcase. It is a compressed file that includes
    one or more other files in an archived format. The RAR program lets you
    extract a copy of the contents. The RAR program does open the zip file to
    do the extraction, but it merely gets a copy of the zipped contents -
    translating the content files into an uncompressed format. It does not
    destroy or otherwise diminish the zip file, so you can still extract another
    uncompressed copy of the zipped file's contents at any time.

    Of course, once you have the uncompressed file you are after, you can delete
    any undesired files - including the zip file itself - if you like.

    Convert the zip file to exe and put options to extract stealth to any folder
    that you need (with rar/ace file is the same procedure).
    Other option is installing any control into your access mdb to use ZIP
    files. See on www.fathsoft.com there is a very simple control to use ZIP
    files and very low cost.
