Archive (Change To Read Only) But Maintain Forms Functionality

    I have an Access 2002 database which I need to preserve as is, but change it
    from updatable (?) to read only for legal/audit reasons. But it has many
    forms and queries with VB source code tied to them which seem to error out
    when the forms are opened.
    Can I simply comment out all the code since everyting is read only now? Or
    will we lose functionality?
    Thanks in advance for any help. KD in Austin

    Well, obviously you will lose functionality - whatever functionality
    the code provides.

    Without knowing what that might be, what errors you get, or what the
    code does, it's purely impossible to say whether you'll be able to use
    your forms in read-only mode. Have you simply tried it on a copy of
    the database?
