    No, I'm afraid not.

    The nearest you can get within Access is to save your database as a .MDE file. Users can't change or view the design of forms, raports and modules in a .MDE.

    To create a .EXE, you need to write a program in VB6 (or Delphi or C++ or ...) and compile it, but there is no easy way to convert an Access form into a VB6 form. Controls in Access are different from those in VB6. You'd have to start from scratch.
