Hi All,

Is it possible to compile an MS Access 2007 project into an executable that can be access by anyone even without MS Access?

Thanks.

No.

You can install the Access run-time files (free download from MS) and then copy the an accdb file as a accdr file and run the application in the run-time environment.

You must have everything that the user needs to run the app  explicitly built into your application (all menus/ribbons) as there is nothing available from the run-time environment.
