Can I use in VB.NET Access.mdb tables even if the user hasn't Access installed?

P: n/a
Hi,

I'm not shure if this is the right forum but the core program is VB.NET. So,
my question is: can I create, open, read and write Access.mdb tables even if
the user for which I'm writing a program hasn't Access installed?

Regards,

Marcel

just use the OleDB jet database provider, there is no need for access when
you use this free provider included with windows
