Need to make MDE but have external forms that link to tables

I have two MDB. Because on of them just sits in a loop watching barcode readers.   The other one allows the user to make changes/additions and deletions to one of the tables in the first mdb through a linked table.

I want to prevent the user from screwing up the program by making it a MDE. The problem is that the 2nd program(mde) can no longer access and make changes to the linked table that resides in the first mde.  

Does this make sense? Can you help?

One solution would be to make a third database used solely for the tables. You can then link to it from both the existing databases, which you can make mde's. Makes for a robust system and allows you direct access to the tables, for queries maintenance etc
