    Unanswered: mde file

    Does anyone know how to "unlock" or get into an mde file in order to see the underlying code?

    Thanks for any help offered.

    There is *no* underlying source code in an MDE file, only compiled code.

    You cannot view the code in an MDE - this is why you must backup the original MDB file before converting!
