dlrider left a comment to my post about Access 2003 security:

I came across this page looking for this solution. Thanks. I know nothing about Runtime (and the MS site isn't clear to me) so I thought I'd ask the knowledgeable... If an application is put together as a runtime package, can a user with full Access open it as a normal .mdb and make changes?

The simple answer is yes. The user accessing the .mdb via the runtime can view your Access application as if they were using the full version of Access 2003. The limitation of the runtime, is that the user can not edit the forms, queries, database, etc...

Yes ... .mdb can be viewed and changes may be made by anyone who has full access and password ( if the db is protected with password) . To avoid this situation you can convert mdb to MDE prior to its distribution to end user and have the .mdb with you in order to make future changes if requested by the user.
