Stand Alone Database Application

P: n/a
Is is possible to create a stand alone database application that a
user can run without Access being installed. I used to have a program
on my old Commodor 64 called Codex that did this. I would like to do
this also with windows.

If Access does not do this, does anyone know of a program that will do
it?

Thanks,
jeff :)

Check out "Access Runtime" - it can be installed on users machines and
is a cut down version of access & its Free . if you have a copy of
Office developers or Visual studio You can develop the database in
Access and users can run it with runtime
I have users using it without any problems to date

You can create a run-time version for distribution.
I donít think the standard version of Access will
allow you to do this, you will need the developer edition
or better.

I don't think there is a "better" version (more features, perhaps) than the
Developer's Edition???

A mde isn't a stand alone database. It still requires Access to run

Hi Tony,
Thanks for the info. I am not in any way a programmer and I certainly
do not understand all of the capabilities of Access. The nice thing
about the old Code X program was that you didn' thave to know anything
other then where to place the fields. It was really slick.
