A blindfold and a firing squad? A cyanide capsule?

If you're talking about making an EXE file, you can't. The closest you can come is an .MDE file, which keeps people from peeking inside and changing things.

1) Make a backup copy!
2) Go into your code then Debug > Compile
3) Fix any errors it finds
4) Exit VB Editor
5)Tools > Database Utilities
6) Make MDE File

Goto Tools > Startup and under Display Form/Page pick the form you want to open with. You can also unclick Display Database Window if you don't want that to show. To get back into the "design" side after you've done this, just hold down the <Shift> key while clicking to open the db. To eliminate having to open Access and picking the db to open, go into Windows Explorer , goto the db file and create a shortcut to the desktop. Click on the icon on the desktop and you should be in.

In that case you should have read and followed the instructions in POSTING GUIDELINES: Please read carefully before posting to a forum instead of posting a single line that doesn't even say what you want.
It's also good manners to thank someone who's trying to help you.
