How to make exe file in Access

i've developed a database in MS Access and by boss want it on desktop. How can i make exe (application) file so that i can place it on desktop. you can mail me at m.raza@england.com

RE: How to make exe file in Access

You need to use a wizard/tool that is included only in the more-expensive ODE (Office Developer's Edition) version to create an executable. But if your boss has any version of Access, you don't need to create an executable. Just copy it to his desktop (or copy it to a server and put a shortcut to it on hs desktop).

Another option...

You can save the database as a .MDE file. This may/may not be appropriate. Look up MDE in help for details.
