    Running MDB or MDE on Office Standard Edition (A2K Sr1/Win2K)

    Is there a way to run a MDE or MDB file on a machine that does not have Access installed? The pc's in question only have Off2K standard without MS Access.

    Thanks,
    Mark Santos

    You need to have the Office Developer version on a machine to create a setup for your database that includes the Access runtime. Then you can install that setup on the other machines and they can run the application. However, you have to be careful because somethings don't work or work differently in the runtime version.

    Thanks Charlotte,
    I will check this out. I am not doing anything real fancy on this particular app, just some basic calculations and printing some forms.

    Thanks,
