I have an MS ACCESS 2.0 application in the form of .mdb file and
wish to create an .exe file such that the end user cannot
view the source code nor forms in the design mode. How can I
create such an .exe file ?

Very simple- You can't. Well no exactry....
If you wish to desterbute you're access application u need another tools from MS that called Application Development Resource Kit (Note: MS change it's name from version to version), This tool can create fro you setup diskets like in VB. The application is unpenetratable and is safe from, viewing.

Where can I get this Application Development Resource Kit?
Is it free? Is it included with higher versions of MS Access ?
(I am using MS Access 2.0.)

It's not free, you should by this one.
For each version 2/7 or 8 you need the proper Development Version.

I called some pre-sales people at Microsoft and they are telling me that this is called ADT (Application Development Toolkit) and it costs ~ $300. Is it the same thing you were talking about? However, MS is telling me that with ADT you do not produce an .exe file, but .dll, and moreover, you stil must distribute your
.mdb file. So it does not solve the problem of (non)distributing .mdb.
This is a big issue, because with .mdb unprotected, my design and source will not be protected. So I do not see the solution with buying ADT.
