    I have not used 2007 RunTime or Developer extensions but there is some info here. You can create an executable file that hides tables nav pane etc.

    You can also download 2010 Runtime and install that on PC's without Access. Runtime will open an accdb or accde file. If you choose to deploy an accdb file you can programmatically hide the nav pane, toolbars, and etc.

    Always practice with a copy. Many nuances with the behavior of the file after adjusting startup and menu settings.

    Be aware that holding down shift key while opening accdb file will override most database option settings and bypass Autoexec macro, making everything available. There is a way to disable shift key but if you forget the password, will never be able to get into development mode.
