Short answer - no

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

or use

MSAccess runtime if you dont have MSA on all pc's

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).

There are only three chances of doing that....

Slim
Fat
and None.
