Packaging an Access 2010 database with external data

This may seem like a silly question, but I haven't yet been able to find the answer to my specific concern anywhere. I have a database that is designed to run certain queries and formulate reports based on an external SQL database.  So, the Access database has to be able to update its data each time it is opened so that the user has up-to-date data on the reports. So far, users have all had the full Access application installed on their workstations, but now that's going to change. So, I'm looking at deploying the database to users by creating a package (runtime).  I just want to be sure that the data from the backend SQL database will still be updated even though the users have read-only abilities for the Access database itself when using Access Runtime.

There is no difference in runtime and full Access in data processing. You can't change DB design only

OK - that's what I thought, but thanks for the confirmation!
