distributing access database files

I've done some research on the net and think I have an answer, but I'm
just looking for some other opinions.

I would like to create an access database file to distribute to others.
I would use an excel (which the other users would have) front-end to
manipulate the database via vba. I'm assuming that since I'm only
distributing the database file and not any part of the access program,
there shouldn't be any type of legal issue.

Any other thoughts?

TIA.
Mike.

Correct. You can distribute, give away, sell, database files all day
long.
Happy early retirement,
