I want to protect reports from viewing in design view of an access report , I am using office 2010.
User can see and execute reports do not want them to view it in design for unexpected modification.
same also forms and modules, user can directly choose a form, module and execute them but cannot open them in design view.

Please advise.

Thanks

open the .accdb
File > Save & Publish > save database as >make accde

You can also protect the design view of Forms, Reports and Modules by setting a VBA password ...  Tools>> <projectName> Properties >> Protection
Lock the project for viewing - enter a password.  Do NOT forget your password.  Keep a development copy of db WithOut the  password.  Set password for deployment.
