Hi ,

In VB 6 there is Package & Deployment wizard. While Setting the Setup It will ask any other file to be include. There u can add that mdb file. Remind that if ur program using App.path basis. or not. If the database is in app.path format then the application will work. After completion of the Deployement the mdb file will be available in Support Folder. Try it if you are using VB6.
