In Access i have a program made but am unable to compile it so that it works without having to open Access if anyone knows how to do this please HELP!!

RE: MS Access

It's a little different for different versions of Access.  For '97 you need to buy the MS Office Professional Developers edition.  This allows you to package a database with a runtime only version of access.

(This is a real hack tohough, if you install one of these on a machine that also has the full version of Access you will break their Access since the runtime is simply a patched version of the fiull package and installs on top of the full package..)

If you're trying to write a distrutable "commersial" typ of application you should re-do the whole thing in VB and complile it.


If everything seems to be going well: you don't have enough information.......

RE: MS Access


I wonder how can I print on an external printer in my Win98 dial-up network from my Access2000 application?
