Special MDB or normal MDE ??

P: n/a
Under Access 2003 Developer Extensions there is an aplication which is
named Custom StartUp Wizard, with the posibility to make an MDB file
without any access to the internal code, design etc...... also it is
Not possible to import from other MDB it looks like same as a normal
MDE, but I'm not quite sure.

Question:

Is this MDB file special or is identically as an normal MDE ??

If there are same, why do they have deferent extensions names ??
If there are deferent why they apperar to work in the same way ??

Thanks in advance

Sounds like it's an MDE. You can rename an Access database to anything: call
it MyApp.xxx and it'll still work fine.

To determine whether it is an MDE, you can look for the MDE property of the
database object (CurrentDb.Properties!MDE), which will be the letter "T" in
an MDE and which will not exist in the non-MDE.
