    Unanswered: How to distribute MS Access Application

    I'm building an MS Access application that I would like to be able to distribute to PC's that don't necessarily have Access installed. Is there anyway that it can be compiled or assembled into a standalone application that does not require MS Access on the target machine? If that's not feasible, does anyone know of any freely distributed PC-dbms's that READILY links into MS WORD and/or Excel?

    Thanks

    What you need is the Access runtime and developer extension. See this: http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/office/aa905403.aspx

    The good news is that the runtime and developer extension is FREE with Access 2007! So upgrade your app to A2007 to take advantage of this $800 savings.
