There are some third party tools out that will help you convert an Access app to VB or VB.NET but you really can't just "convert" an Access application to an executable.

If you are using Access 2007, you CAN use the Runtime version of Access and the free developer's kit (search for Access 2007 SDK on the Microsoft Site) and you can distribute the files, including the Runtime version via an installation package.

However, you will still have the Access window and you will need to provide "bullet-proof" error handling and custom toolbars/Ribbon for your users.

Export the data using Access, then use the application to open that.

Not to disparage your attempt at a solution MidiMagic, but doing that would not solve the problem of creating a database program without the Access Interface. The questions I have about your suggested solution, are:

1. Export to what?

2. How do you take all of the functionality of the forms and queries and rebuild it in what?

Sure you can build a VB, VB.NET, C#, C++, Java application that is a database application but I don't think that's exactly what they are looking for. Maybe it is, but the indications are that they just don't want to see the Access splash screen and Access application window.

You can take a look at the Microtools' Access to VB .NET/C# for Windows applications converters. Their url is <URL SNIPPED>
