    .ACCDE File Format

    Hello,



    I have created an inventory database that other users in our company will be using. It was suggested that I try making a ".accde" file to keep users from being able to accidentally change components in the database.

    I am new to access so I am learning as I go but will the original .accdb file and the new .accde file be linked? For instance, if I change or add something to the .accdb file will it be reflected in the .accde file?

    Thanks in advance!

    They are not linked. If you need to make changes, you make them to the accdb file then create a new accde file to distribute.
