Join Adam Wilbert for an in-depth discussion in this video Packaging your application, part of Access 2013: Tips & Tricks.
When all of your development work is complete,…and your database has gone through some thorough…beta testing, it's time to roll it out to your end users for live production use.…Before you do, I would highly recommend…distributing a compiled or executable version of a…database, to minimize any alterations that the…users might attempt to make on their own.…In the Access database, we can get into any Visual Basic code…through modules by right-clicking on the module name and choosing design view.…That'll open up the module in Visual Basic where you can explore the code.…So go ahead and close out Visual Basic.…
There's also a shortcut key that we can use, Ctrl+G, will also open up Visual…Basic, and we can explore the various forms…and modules that are involved in this database.…For instance, if I double click here where it says form…main menu options to see the form main menu options code.…I see the code that was attached to the show…and hide ribbon buttons that we installed earlier in this course.…Let's go ahead and close all these out.…
