Does anyone have a list of steps to distribute a finished mdb... this is if you don't have a server to put the BE on and need to replicate. ie backup open new database and import all items Compact and repair and debug Change all settings that you want changed like Startup etc split into FE/BE Make the mdb an mde (should this go before the split?) Replicate the BE (this should be the only part replicated right?) Will the FE still use it normally. I have read numerous articles about each of the steps but I don't know which ones should go first. Thanks!!
