Front end application

I am currently designing a new front end for my back end database using linked tables. However, I am trying to find a way to still allow users to add/delete/modify records without having MS Access installed on their computer.

Would that be a job for a professional programmer or does MS Access have some other method of doing this? Like a way to export a form as an application or something.

Please let me know if this makes sense at all, it's much to early. I was looking at some SQL statements earlier, and could hardly understand what they meant. Just a bit tired at this time of the morning, but that is why coffee is in high demand. Haha.

Oh, and a sidenote...

I understand how to make a table with a username/pass field (haha, easy enough)

I was told to make a Login msgbox that would allow them to login if their password matches.

Simple question, how?

Currently, nothing is a high priority, just trying to get ready for the future.

On the sidenote issue - search through the Access forum for threads already done on this.

To install an Access application without Access on the machine, you would need the Runtime Library. Usually you would have to have Office Developer. There are also packages available on the web if you have a look.

I found mostly ones relating to Office Developer, along with other companies that will make a database front end application for me. Also, with the new version of office coming out, M$ has spent a great deal of cash to get their placement on the search engines... or just through sheer dominance in the area. Either/"OR"

Do you by chance know of any that offer a trial, or are entirely free? I want to give the executives here something to look at before asking them to pay for some more technology.

I am going to play around with the code you have given me on this subject and hopefully get it to work.
