modify after packaging access database

Hi all
I wonder if there is a way to modify some of the disabled toolbars of a report after the database is packaged & installed in computers something like a service pack without affecting data already entered
Thank you in advance

RE: modify after packaging access database

Apparently you have distributed an Access application with the front-end and back-end objects in a single file. This only leads to multiple complications.

I would create a new front-end of forms, reports, queries, macros, and code. Link to the tables in the back-end (formerly both ends). Make sure you have code that assists the user with relinking the tables. Distribute the new front-end that doesn't contain any of the tables.
