Short answer is no. Access files cannot be converted to exe files, nor can you convert them to vb/.net as the user forms etc are unique to Access itself - there is no converter I know of that will make a VB project from an Access DB.

Access VBA code can to some extent be used within a VB environment, if you wish to use VB's forms environment to generate your own user forms in place of Access's, but current generation .net VB uses a lot more modular object-based methods than VBA, so even converting from VBA to .net VB code is in some cases far from simple.

There is another option... the runtime environment.

also some here:

Just remember, you have to supply everything in this environment, menues, error trapping, etc...

There is also the packaging wizard available under the save and publish on the backstage that will help with this too...
