I am trying to open a MS Access dB on a machine that only has a run-time version of Access using VB. Currently I am using "CreateObject("Access.Application") to open the .mdb and this works on machines with MS Access but not on ones with just runtime versions. I have tried GetObject but this fails. Is there an object similar to Access.Application that is for runtime versions of Access? Also, the main part of the program is in the .mdb file and runs fine on these machines but I want to open and close it through VB to hide the location of the file from end users.
