    Access "exe"? Nope.

    No such animal.

    You can make "mde" as a "runtime version" or replicte Access VBA in VB - "just" working out issues of data access.

    Edmun3,

    IGelin's reply was substantially correct.

    You will need a developer's edition, regardless of which version of Access you are using.

    If you are using Access2.0, you will need the Access2.0 Developer's Edition.

    If you are using Access95, you will need the Access95 Developer's Edition.

    If you are using Access97, you will need the Access97 Developer's Edition.

    If you are using Access2000, you will need the Access 2000 Developer's Edition.

    Etc., etc., etc.

    I have to tell you though, that the Access developer's editions are more expensive than the regular version of Access, so if they are not willing to spend the money on a regular version of Access, they certainly will not spend the money to buy you a developer's edition. The one advantage of the developer's edition is that it provides you with an environment, and licensing, which will allow you to make unlimited copies of your program. Without the developer's edition, your client would have to buy a copy of Access for each computer.

    Ya got to spend money to make money.
