    How can I create a DB that will run without Access loaded on the PC?
    I'm looking for something like pps is to ppt (powerpoint).
    Seems like I remember a developer kit that comes with certain office
    versions that allow this...
    Can I do it simply?
    Thanks

    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
