Hello sorry to waste your time with stupid question but im making a database using Access. It only contains 1 table with information and 1 form to put in new information into the table. Now can i somehow export the database lets say to my desktop and when i open it the form would pop up to put in new information in the table or to just see the table as it is. something like an .exe file or an app

@jankokg The short answer is "No", you can't turn an accdb into an exe.

 

That said, there are ways to deploy relational database applications created with MS Access that do not require users to have a full licensed version. You can have them use the Access Runtime, which is a free download that only RUNS your relational database application, but not modify it.
