Opening databases with out MS access

Hi,

I have an Access database file with all the switchboard commands and
what I want to do is to try to access the switchboard command without
opening microsoft access. Which means i want to access the database
without opening access. I am seeing if I can make this file an
executable file but i dont think this is the solution. If anybody have
any ideas, please help. Thanks

You cannot use Access interface without having Access installed into your pc.

You can use (but not modify the design of) an Access database if you have
the Access runtime, as packaged by the Office Developer Edition (pre-2003)
or by the Visual Studio Tools for Office 2003 System.

If, in your view, installing the Access runtime qualifies as "having Access
installed", then your answer is correct.
