My question is rather simple as I am new to VB. I would like to create a small application that uses an access database with a VB front end interface. I would then like to load the application on a machine that does not have access installed. Will the application still be able to use the .mdb database or do I need to install Office or additional .dlls on all machines that are going to use the application. One other thought is there a setting in the database that I created with access that needs to be set.
