    Distributing Access APs (XP)

    I am using the Developer version of Office XP which seems to do what I want with the packaging Wizard. However this still does not secure my code if someone puts it an a machine with the full version of Access. There used to be a way to convert an MDB to another format - MDE I think that did not allow a user to modify or view objects in design view. I know it had a couple of issues like being able to select another printer but I can work around that. SO my question is - is this still available in XP and where do I find it?

    I found it - it was greyed out because the database was in 2000 format. All is now right with the world, thanks.
