    I am a novice at VB programming. I just wanted to know if after you created a program in VB, if there is someway to allow it to run as an application on its own?That is, allowing it to run on a computer that does not have VB or Access on it. (Access was used for the database backend)

    I'm not a VB guy, but I think the answer to your question
    is "yes".

    Once you compile it to an EXE it should run on any PC.
    You'll just have to wait on some of these VB guys for
    more info on how to do it.

    Cheers, Mac :)

    Sure it can. It'll have to run on a windows comp though. Depending on how you package it (I think) the person trying to use your program may need to download VB runtime files.

    you would have to compile it and then run the program to distribute it and then install it on every computer. Also, which Access is it? If it is 2000, you may also have to install dcom on each computer also.
