I have a database that I have created using MS Access.  I want to be able to convert it to an application that I can install on clients machines.  Some of these clients may not have access to Access (???).  Can someone please advise how I go about this.

You can deploy Access applications using the Access Runtime.  I haven't tried doing it as a package but if the runtime is installed on the client machine, it still opens the database fine (almost like an Officer Viewer product).

correct, you can use something like ODBC or to hook into the database, then it's just a matter of using SQL statements to get the data you want out of it.

What programming language were you planning on using?
