self executable

Is is possible to create a self executable out of an access database.
Something that will run on a computer that does not have Access?

Thanks,
Brendan

An Access database itself cannot be compiled to an executable file. If you wish
to install your application on systems that do not have Access installed, you
will need to use the Developer's Edition, which comes with a runtime version of
Access.

You can create an MDB or MDE that can run using the run-time version
of Access. Not nearly what you are looking for I presume, but the
closest, I believe, to a yes answer that you are going to get.

That's good enough, how do I go about doing that?

You must purchase the Developer's Edition of Access in order to distribute
the runtime. To make an MDE file, click Tools - Database Utilities - Make
MDE

Save yourself a ton of grief. Say to the people in question, "You must have
a working version of Access on your PC". >Whole third-party products< have
grown up for handling the problems arising from the developer's edition
runtime installations.
