If I put an MDB or ACCDB file on a machine is there a way I can run forms and reports without having MS Access on that machine. Is there a compiler or something involved here and would there be issues with licensing that might come into play here? We would like to build a report scheduler that will allow users to run a report against an Access DB and allow users to view it when needed on demand or where our application happens to be.

The alternative is to run the Access Report and view it in one of these applications such as excel, word or Adobe reader (pdf). The only one I know of that has the free reader is Adobe. Are there others if the Access solution above is not available?
