Short answer - no

Use VB / C to connect to the db then compile that

or use

It is not possible. The only way would be to run it as a runtime, or make a frontend in a program such as Visual Basic and link it to the backend database (which would remain an mdb).

but to get the Access Runtime, you MUST purchase the Office Developer's Edition ($700 US).

Slim

and None.
