     Hi,

    i changed the extention (.accdb) to .accdr of a database file, containing some tables, queries, forms, reports, macros and modules. When i start it, i come into the Access environment, but there is nothing to see, nothing to do: no menu bars, no tables ...

    So, what's the meaning of runtime mode? Why do i see nothing?

    Thanks for explanation

    Luc

    in order for a runtime version of an access database to show you anything at startup, an access developer would need to have coded it with a startup form and/or menus etc...  in runtime mode you would no longer be able to alter things like tables/queries/forms/reports etc...

    if you're just using the access db to hold data for an asp.net app, runtime mode isn't needed.
