Just create your database and give the other companies a copy.
The only thing to do is to "split" the database in a front-end and a back-end. (See Tools/Database utilities/Split database manager)
This will make sure that the data is stored in a different .mdb and thus you can create new forms and reports and distribute only a new frontend, leaving the data of the companies "untouched".
Only when table changes are needed, the distribution will be more work.

Getting the idea ?

The split's objective is to have the tables (and only the tables) in another database.
Now you can change the forms/reports/etc. without having to bother about the actual data.
Perhaps reading the F1 file on splitting databases might give some more insights.
