you can use the package and deployment wizard to create a runtime version of your application.

open a module in your database and click on addins.
if the Package and deployment wizard isnt there then click on AddIn Manager and select the VBA Package and Deployment wizard.
Restart the db and go back to Add-Ins.
Click on the package and deployment wizard and it will guide u through the rest of the process

lishu,

As Ricky commented, an exe isn't possible.

You can do two things:
1) Create a .mde (See tools/database utilities or addins)
   This will make the forms, reports and modules unaccessable for the users but tables and queries can be edited. And the users will need Access to be installed on their system.
2) For the creation of a runtime version (Diatris comment points to that) you need the developer version of Access.
  This will create a version that can run on a machine without Access, but not all functions (like the right-click selection on datasheets) will be supported.

Need more info ?

btw, for creating a 'package' for distributing a runtime version u will need the ODE-tools, which comes with MS Office Developer Edition.

This will cost extra for purchase...
Instead u can create an MDE (i have a dutch version so i dont know exactly how the menus are named in english, but look for 'Create MDE' in menu Tools --> ... --> Create MDE)

This way your code will be compiled and unaccesable for anyone who will be using your application.
The tables however can be opened and adjusted. Perhaps u can hide them.

cheers
Ricky

Just split them between the three of us, as all three did contribute part of the answer/solution.
