run a form without Access

P: n/a
Is it possible to create a database with forms in MS Access that other
users can just fill in the form without actually having Access on their
computers?

No. Your users need either a fully functioning MS Access or the runtime
version which, I believe has to bought separately if you want to
distribute it. Such a licence to distribute is relatively expensive I
believe.

It is possible if you license the proper developer support from Microsoft.
For a good discussion, see MVP Tony Toews' site,
http://www.granite.ab.ca/access/deve...onversions.htm.

It's not possible without the developer edition or Visual Studio Tools for
Office, whichever applies to the version of Access you're running.

There is a feature in the new Access 2007, so that updates may be e-mailed
to the database, but I am not familiar with that.
