    Get Around Mde (Access 2000)

    I have an MDE that I need to see the VB code, Is there any way around the MDE property so I can just copy the code over?

    No, once a database is converted to an MDE file, the source text for all code is physically removed (not just hidden or so), only the compiled code remains. The only hope you have is to get at the MDB used to create the MDE from. If that is not available, there is no way to retrieve the source code.

    As far as I know you can't undo an .MDE file. Your best bet is to find a copy of the .MDB the .MDE was made from.

    ... but maybe the lounge can provide you the answer to the deeper question <img src=/S/invisible.gif border=0 alt=invisible width=15 height=15> which made you so eager to look at that mde's VBA-code...
